I’m not sure if using a baseball card in a ScuttleButton during college basketball’s March Madness is exactly the right approach, but once again we were left with no alternative. (And it’s a Boston Red Sox baseball card no less.)
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!

Dom Di Maggio/Boston Red Sox — It’s bad enough I had to break away from buttons to use a baseball card. But someone from the Red Sox? (I’m kidding of course. And I LOVE this card.)
pin of Minnie Mouse — Mickey’s sweetheart.
Ken Kramer for Congress — Kramer, a Colorado Republican, was elected in 1978, replacing Bill Armstrong, who was elected to the Senate.
Save Our Republic/Impeach Earl Warren — A slogan of the John Birch Society from the 1950s and ’60s, aimed at the Chief Justice and former California governor.
So, when you add Dom + Minnie + Ken + Republic, you kinda’ get …
Dominican Republic. Which just so happens is where I spent my spring vacation. In luxurious Punta Cana. (But that was harder to make into a button puzzle.)
And the randomly-selected winner is … Daniel Klapperich of Chicago, Illinois. Daniel wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
