In case you missed it, Governor Bob McDonnell appeared on the Fox News Channel morning show Fox & Friends yesterday to tout his State of the Commonwealth address Wednesday night and Virginia's budget surplus. He also took the opportunity, when the opening was given, to take a polite shot at some of his Democrat colleagues who've raised taxes in their states over the last year.

Friendly interview: Governor McDonnell had a receptive forum for his message — cut spending, don't raise taxes.
