Sorry, Mr. President, but there’s only one side — actually, only one person — that will be chosen as the randomly selected winner of this week’s ScuttleButton puzzle. You can thank the Political Junkie “culture” for that.
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.
Totally Committed/Peyser — Peter Peyser served as a Republican and later as a Democratic member of Congress from New York.
Klepps 107th District — From my “unknown” collection.
Jennings for Governor? Uff Da! — My often used button of this 1982 Republican hopeful from Minnesota.
It’s a Boy!/Michael Jeffrey Rudin/March 23, 1990 — Not sure who this fellow is.
So, when you combine Totally + Klepps + Uff Da + son, you kinda get …
Total Eclipse of the Sun. Which is what parts of the U.S. observed on Aug. 21.
And the randomly selected winner is … Dave Spinelli of Niantic, Conn. Dave wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
