Spoiler alert: In the final episode of “Mad Men,” there is no reference at all to ScuttleButton puzzles or the delight that some people get in solving them week after week. I’m probably going to stop watching.
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!
Enter your submission using the convenient submission form below, or email your submission to [email protected]. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
J C photo Jimmy Carter) Can Save America — Elected president in 1976.
No More Years — An anti-Nixon button during the Watergate scandal, in response to the Nixon campaign’s “Four More Years” slogan from 1972.
Boll Weevil (with the flag of Texas) — Referring to conservative Democrats in the Lone Star State, circa 1970s-’80s.
So, when you combine C + No + Weevil, you kinda get …
