Hillary gives a call-to-arms speech in Brooklyn. Jeb announces in Miami with passion and a purpose. While the two of them attempt to become the first presidential nominees in history without a last name, I thought this would be a good time as any for the latest ScuttleButton puzzle.
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 protected]nkie.com. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
God … Reagan … Rush! — We’re assuming the latter on this conservative buttons is for Rush Limbaugh.
Cheer Up They’re Still Only 90 Miles Away (map of Cuba) — Mid-’60s anti-Communist button reminding us that Cuba is just 90 away from Key West, Fla.
Gimme Jimmy! (pic Durante) The Candidate — Jimmy Durante, the longtime singer and comedian (who always referred to his large and prominent nose as “Schnozzola“); this button is for his 1950-ish book about his career.
So, when you combine God + Only + Nose, you kinda arrive at …
God Only Knows. A Beach Boys song from 1966, the flip-side of their single, “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” — but so much better. Also on the album “Pet Sounds” and featured in the current movie, “Love & Mercy.” A great Beach Boys song.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Chris Artherholt of Brooklyn, N.Y. She wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
