While you prepare to attend the politics forum this Sunday in Rochester, N.Y. — tickets are still available — you may as well solve 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.
two different Had Enough/Row C buttons — from New York’s Conservative Party, circa 1970s. Two buttons on the same line means we’re looking for a plural here.
Richards 1980 — Ann Richards was elected Texas state treasurer that year.
Brooks’ House of Bar-B-Q — Not the most political of buttons, but sometimes you gotta eat.
So, when you combine Rows + Ann + Bar, you kinda get …
Roseanne Barr. The comedienne and prolific tweeter who tweeted herself out of a TV gig.
And the randomly selected winner is … Richard Davies of Aurora, Colo. Richard wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
