It’s ScuttleButton Time!
I don’t care if you have to push the prime minister of Montenegro aside to make it happen, but you’ve GOT to solve 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!
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.
A — Button obtained from Anarchist book store in NYC, circa 1975.
Nixon — From Richard Nixon’s successful presidential bid in 1968.
Kennedy for President in 1980 — Ted Kennedy lost in his challenge to President Carter’s renomination.
Nixon’s the One/Agnew’s the Two — The 1968 Republican ticket.
I Luv McGov — George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic presidential nominee.
So, when you combine A + Dick + Ted + Two + Luv, you kinda get …
Addicted to Love. You might as well face it, it’s Robert Palmer’s hit song from 1986 (as well as a nice 2009 cover by Florence & the Machine).
And the randomly selected winner is … Noemi Levine of Berkeley, Calif. Noemi wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
