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.

    After the printing George will bury this in a time capsule and mark it as one of the most memorable moments in his presidential history – years later it will be uncovered and used as a urinal "God Bless America"

    Dick Cheney patiently awaits his own check for $1,200 for him and Mrs. Cheney; a little pocket change considering his eleven million.

    That's right! Hillary wanted some time alone with this machine, something about needing money for campaigning!

    See! Each check says, "Backed by the full faith and credit of the Chinese Government."

    Dick Cheney shows off the final stage of the Bush administration's Rube Goldberg machine. This is where the smoke and mirrors emerge.

    One hundred and thirty Americans shiver in fear as they hear Dick Cheney utter the word "shot" when making reference to them.

    No Dick, those aren't stimulus checks for Iraq. They're for us. You know, The United States Of Amercia, land of the free! By the way, yours isn't in there either, you've spent it already.

    I can't quite put my finger on why these stimulus checks are just another political gimmick.
