Good news for participants in the DACA program: We’ve extended the time you may solve this week’s ScuttleButton puzzle by six months.
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.
Re-Elect Sheriff Joe Job/Bergen County — A Republican winner in New Jersey, 1969.
(pic Joe Biden) — Part of a matching set of buttons from 2008, the other being Barack Obama.
We R For Rockefeller — Nelson Rockefeller was re-elected governor of New York in 1962.
Let 1000 Pies Fly/Gov. Rhodes/Aug. 16, ’77 — James Rhodes, the Republican governor of Ohio, was hit in the face by a pie thrown by a Yippee demonstrator during the opening of the Ohio State Fair.
O Bae (with picture of Reagan) — Obtained at the Politicon conference in 2016, “BAE” is supposed to mean “Before Anyone Else.”
So, when you combine Sheriff + Joe + R + Pie + O, you kinda get …
Sheriff Joe Arpaio. That Maricopa County fella from Arizona President Trump pardoned who had been convicted of criminal contempt for violating a court order that called on him to stop racial profiling those people he detained for being suspected illegal immigrants.
