There’s only one thing worse than a snowstorm blanketing Washington. And that’s a ScuttleButton puzzle that violates the rules.
It’s true. This week’s offering breaks the bond of trust I’ve had with you since this contest began by using a non-button as the final clue. And with this coming after the Brian Williams and Bill O’Reilly sagas, I guess the real question is … Who cares?
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!

Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer
BB/Bill Bray — Congressman Bray, an Indiana Republican, was a candidate for governor at the 1964 GOP state convention.
Net Weekend 97 — Something to do with the Internets.
10 Points for Obama — Nice 2008 item from the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
Yahoo! — Logo from the search engine company. Not a button. I was desperate.
So, when you combine BB + Net + 10 + Yahoo, you kinda get …
Bibi Netanyahu. The Israeli prime minister who was returned to office this week for his third consecutive term, and fourth over all.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Aaron Wenzel of Columbus, Ohio. Aaron wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
