It’s ScuttleButton Time! – 12/18/13

scuttleOkay, so maybe my idea of having some guy in South Africa do this week’s ScuttleButton in sign language didn’t pan out.   That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t solve the 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!

Good luck!

Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer

For President (pic) Rockefeller — New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1964 and 1968; this button is from his ’68 effort.

Congressman (pic) James R. Mann — Mann, a South Carolina Democrat, served from 1969-78.

Dela (map of Delaware) Where? — The First State.

And so, when you add Nelson + Mann + Dela, you might end up with …

Nelson Mandela.  The revered South African nationalist who died this month.

And the winner, chosen completely at random, is … Rachel Goldberg of Charlotte, N.C.  Rachel gets the coveted Political Junkie button.
