Michael Flynn says this week’s ScuttleButton puzzle is so easy you should be locked up if you can’t figure it out in seconds. Ready to take the challenge?
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.
Charlie Rose for Congress — A North Carolina Democrat, Rose was first elected in 1972 and served until he retired after 1996.
Colored Any Good Books Lately? — A snarky anti-Dan Quayle button from 1992.
Barry (with glasses) — A button from the 1968 campaign of Barry Goldwater, who successfully returned to the Senate from Arizona four years after losing his bid for the White House.
So, when you combine Rose + Colored + glasses, you kinda get …
Rose Colored Glasses. The tendency to see things in a positive light … which many people in this country had, until fairly recently.
And the randomly selected winner is … Laurie Bonini of Laramie, Wyo. Laurie wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
