You know that when editorial comment seeps into the ScuttleButton puzzle, we’re all in trouble.
How to Play
ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons. Your job is to take one word (or concept) per button and add ’em up to arrive at a famous name or familiar expression. Guess the correct phrase and you could be the proud winner of the coveted Political Junkie button!
Enter your submission using the convenient submission form below, or email your submission to email@example.com. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
Blood for Governor — Robert Blood, a New Hampshire Republican, was elected governor in 1940.
Re-elect Congressman Dick Swett — Another N.H. candidate, Swett was a Democrat who was re-elected to Congress in 1992.
Donald Trump/45th President of the United States — He lost the popular vote but defeated Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College.
So, when you combine Blood + Swett + the thought of Trump winning the presidency, you kinda get …
Blood, Sweat and Tears. I know, a cheap shot.
And the randomly selected winner is … Kim Upham of Portland, Ore. Kim wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
