It’s ScuttleButton Time! – 1/22/14
And soon it will be unbearably hot in places like Scottsdale, Ariz. And you should stay inside then too.
And what is there to do inside, you ask? ScuttleButton!
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!
picture button of the Tin Man — from the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz.
“ING” on a green button — This 1968 button is for Alaska Sen. Ernest Gruening (pronounced “Green-ing”), who was defeated for renomination in that year’s Democratic primary by Mike Gravel.
And so, when you add Pay + Tin Man + Ing, you might end up with …
Peyton Manning. The Denver Broncos’ quarterback in this year’s Super Bowl.
And the winner, chosen completely at random, is … Melyssa Fratkin of Round Rock, Texas. Melyssa gets the coveted Political Junkie button.
