Beat 360° 5/8/08

Hey Bloggers!

Hot off the press... It's time for 'Beat 360°.'

Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption. Our staff will get in on the action too.

Tune in every night at 10p ET to see if you are our favorite! Can you Beat 360°?

Here is today’s 'Beat 360°' pic of the day: Vice President Dick Cheney tours the Philadelphia Financial Center, which disburses payments on behalf of federal agencies... Cheney says the economic stimulus checks going out to more than 130 million Americans are "a shot of energy at the right time and in the right way."

Beat 360°

Have fun with it.

Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

    And those idiots in Congress think this is a good thing...they get to give $600 to their people, and they give us $163 billion for Iraq. SWEET!

    Cheney pointing to the maintenance man, saying "hey you, this machine is squeaking, can you oil it", and the man responds "can't afford to with the price of oil these days"

    Cheney distracts the check machine operator, yelling look over there a terrorist, while he pockets the roll of checks, and then chuckles oops my mistake... Deja Vu.

    " I see that most of the checks are rejects that end up in that box. Excellent, since we don't actually have much money to hand out."

    Hey lookie over there, money may not grow on trees but checks grow on paper rolls!

    Sure we borrowed all of that from the Chinese. But they threw in 6 eggrolls and some of those fortune cookies. How could we resist?

    Come on guys! Let's get the Clinton's check mailed out quickly. Hillary needs the money and Johnny Mc needs a little more Democratic infighting.

    Can you send an extra check to that fellow I accidently shot while hunting?

    No No No, I get the checks from that other machine over there where millionaires get far bigger return checks than a measly few hundred!

    Cheney says the economic stimulus checks going out to more than 130 million Americans are “a shot of energy at the right time and in the right way.” And let us hope that his aim for that shot i better than when hunting!

    May 8, 2008 at 7:24 pm |
  38. Sue, Billerica, MA

    Cheney pointing to crumpled up checks in waste paper basket... If you guys are just going to be throwing that out, then could I take it to go? … Afterall, I am going to be out of work soon!

    and optionally add...

    ... and if the Dems pull us out of Iraq, I probably won’t get a Halburton Iraq consultant job when I leave office, so as always, I’ll take money whereever I can get it. Money is my God and this place is like a temple of worship for a guy like me!
