Despite strong objections from the Justice Department and the FBI, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) made the risky decision to release this week’s ScuttleButton 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!
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.
N.Y. State Students for Johnson — President Lyndon Johnson was elected to a full term in 1964.
Jennings for Governor?/Uff Da! — The omnipresent 1982 Minnesota button.
Massachusetts AFL-CIO — Union button, circa 1984.
So, when you combine State + Uff Da + Union, you kinda get …
State of the Union. That annual address to Congress by the president.
And the randomly selected winner is … John Albright of Lake City, Minn. John wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
