If I knew Jeff Sessions was going to recuse himself, I would have had a new ScuttleButton puzzle up earlier.
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@example.com. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
Election Night/Clinton Gore/November 3, 1992 — The winning Democratic presidential ticket.
Jennings for Governor? Uff Da! — A Minnesota button in opposition to Republican Dave Jennings in 1990. Uff da is of Norwegian origin, and it means something like “I am dismayed.” Clearly, not a pro-Jennings button.
Live and Let Live — A libertarian slogan.
“Ing” on a green button — Clever rebus for Alaska Democratic Sen. Ernest Gruening, who lost his bid for another term in the 1968 primary to Mike Gravel.
In Memoriam (with a picture of President McKinley) — He was assassinated in 1901.
So, when you combine Night + Uff Da + Live + Ing + dead, you kinda get …
Night of the Living Dead. The 1968 zombie cult classic directed by George Romero, who recently passed.
And the randomly selected winner is … Francisco Prieto of Sacramento, Calif.
