Sure, we have the NBA playoffs, the NHL playoffs, the Kentucky Derby and the Fight of the Century. But do they compare to the excitement of solving ScuttleButton? I ask you.
How to Play
ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons.

Guess the correct phrase and you could be the proud winner of the coveted Political Junkie button!

All the Way with Grey — I’ve always been told that this is a 1973 NYC mayoral hopeful button for Jesse Grey, the civil rights activist and tenant leader. The problem, however, is that his name is spelled Jesse “Gray.”
Surf/Sex/Sin/Sharks PRAY for Rain/Snow — Huh?
80 Indiana VanNatta for Lieutenant Governor — Ralph VanNatta, the mayor of Shelbyville, narrowly lost the Republican primary to John Mutz.
Me & McG — For George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic nominee for president.
So, when you combine Grey + Sin + Natta + Me, you kinda get …
Grey’s Anatomy. That ABC TV show that didn’t become the answer to a ScuttleButton puzzle until its 11th season.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Eric Lee of Hartford, Conn. Eric wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
