I guess I can speak for everyone who watched Speaker John Boehner announce his resignation today: It’s time for a new 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
Elect Key for State Representative — I have no idea who he is.
The Pope in Poland — Recognizing Pope John Paul II’s visit to Poland in 1979.
Bring Me Back Alive — An anti-Vietnam War button.
So, when you combine Key + Pope + Alive, you kinda get…
Keep Hope Alive. The slogan used by Jesse Jackson in his 1988 Democratic convention speech.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Carol Lane, from San Francisco, Calif.
