With the entire political world reduced to guessing who will be a part of the new Trump Administration, the rest of us can focus on more important things. Like this week’s 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!

Column E/Save Hudson County — New Jersey local button.
Make the Check to Lech — When Polish leader Lech Walesa addressed a joint session of Congress in 1989.
Doral Country Club and Hotel — From the 1972 Democratic convention in Miami Beach.
New York University Frosh — A random college button.
So, when you combine E + Lech + Doral + some college, you kinda get …
The Electoral College. A phrase guaranteed to give Hillary Clinton supporters ulcers.
And the randomly selected winner is … Fern Zalin Jones of Valencia, Calif. Fern wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
