It’s my understanding that a lot of fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals were able to solve the last ScuttleButton puzzle. This week may be more challenging. But I hope not, because I’m tired of losing to China and Mexico.

Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer
Romney/Great for ’68 — George Romney, the governor of Michigan, was a Republican presidential hopeful that year.
Phil Burton for Congress — A legendary Democrat from San Francisco, he served in Congress from 1964 until his death in 1983.
In Memory Of/Dwight D. Eisenhower 1890-1969 — Our 34th president.
So, when you combine Great + Phil + um, Dead, you kinda get …
Grateful Dead. Remind me to tell you about the story when NPR’s Mara Liasson and I went to a Dead concert in D.C. after one of Mara’s old high school classmates contacted her to say he worked for the band and could get us backstage tickets.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Kay Prusynski of Madison, Wis. Kay gets the coveted Political Junkie button.
