I know many of you can’t wait for Sunday’s Toilet Bowl matchup between the New York Giants and the New York Jets, but hopefully this week’s ScuttleButton puzzle can tide you over until then.
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.
Observe National Police Week (pic of a pig in a police uniform) Vote Newton-Seale — Black Panthers Huey Newton (Congress 7th CD) and Bobby Seale (Assembly 17th District) ran on the Peace and Freedom Party banner in California in 1968.
I’m for Sinner/You Know Where He Stands — George Sinner, a North Dakota Democrat, ran for Congress in 1964 and lost to Republican Mark Andrews. Twenty years later he was elected governor.
Blanket-In/July ’68 — Does anyone know who this is and what it’s from? I don’t.
So, when you combine Pig + Sinner + Blanket, you kinda get …
Pigs In a Blanket. That delicious (for some) hors d’oeuvre often served at weddings and parties.
And the randomly selected winner is … Dave Jordahl of Appleton, Wis. Dave wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
