It’s ScuttleButton Time!

Here’s how I see it:  If lawmakers can give the American people a deal that keeps the government funded and thus spared from a shutdown, then the least we can do is offer a ScuttleButton puzzle earlier than usual.

Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer

It’s a Child Not a Choice — Button from anti-abortion organization.

Ish — Whatever.

Say No to Drugs! Tee-Jam ’86 — I think this is from a Texas Jam concert at the Cotton Bowl in 1986.

For President/Lyndon B. Johnson — LBJ was elected to a full term in 1964.

Just Say NO to the NRA — A button with pro-gun control sentiments.

So, when you combine Child + Ish + Jam + B + No, you kinda get …

Childish Jambino.  Or should I say, Gambino.   The rapper and singer also known by his real name, Donald Glover.

And the randomly selected winner is … Ruth Shaver of North Conway, N.H.  Ruth wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
