Beat 360° 11/20/09

Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell points to a copy of the Senate version of health care reform legislation during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol November 20, 2009 in Washington, DC. The Republican senators accused the Obama Administration of rationing health care after a panel of doctors announced that women should begin getting regular mammogram at age 50 instead of 40.

    "This is not the health care reform. It´s the insurance application for women over 50. One pile for each woman..."

    A little bill on bill action and the combined monstrosity will probably outweigh Octo-mom at her glowing-est.

    I, the Senate Minority Leader, do solumnly swear to make as many cheap-shot political points as possible....

    You try reading this 2000+ page beaurocratic nightmare. If I wanted a mind-numbing read, I would have lined up to buy Sarah Palin's 'Going Rogue'!

    I want to know who slipped in the chapter on Congressional Hemorrhoids. NOT funny.

    Sen. McConnell reaches down and tries to slowly slide his missing
    Playboy out of the health care bill.

    Does it sting when you rip it off? The American taxpayer, I mean.

    The US Military has its 'army of one.'
    CNN has a moderator of one…who reads on long after comments are, for all practical purposes, closed.

    All we want for Christmas is high health care costs, high health care costs, high health care costs. All we want for Christmas is hight health care costs and to screw the American public (till they bleed in the streets.)

    Statistical mathematicians around the globe are amazed as the 10,000 monkeys theory was demonstrated in far less than 10,000 years.

    You should know better than to leave a boxful of crayons in a room full of Democrats.

    Meanwhile, the cunning typist washes his hands in greedy anticipation of the one BILLION dollars granted to him on page 1168 (in the six-point font).

    Sen. McConnell urges the American people to "Simmer down now y'all and get over this here health care reform nonsense."

    Wow, another way that the Government can decide how they are going to run my life? Fantastic!

    Ironically, the word 'boredom' occurs precisely 2009 times in this historical document.

    Senators look down in fear as the health care bill sits there quietly waiting to stop the lobbyist dollars flowing to capitol hill.

    The first fifty pages are type-written, the next 200 are 9-pin printed, after that there are 700 24-pin printed ones followed by the last 1193 pages printed using laser ink technology. Now, that's what I call progress.

    Yes, put it on a chair so we can all look down upon it.

    Just as a goof, I'd want to put a copy of Spider Man 1 in the middle to see if anybody ever read the actual paper document.

    Is that the Bill or the blogs about the bill?

    Nobody's read it and nobody understands it, but hey, let's vote on it anyway!
