The news has just been awful lately … around the world and here at home. It’s hard to even smile. I’m just going to put up this week’s ScuttleButton puzzle and let you take a shot at it. It’s just grim out there.
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!

Goode / Democrat for Mayor— Wilson Goode was elected mayor of Philadelphia in 1983, the first African-American to do so.
We Won’t Go Back / NOW / Baltimore Chapter / We Will Fight Back —Button from the National Organization for Women.
I’m for Nixon, Bennett, Lloyd, Buehner, Etc. & HUNT Of Course —OK, so we know it’s a 1968 Richard Nixon coattail from Utah, with fellow Republican candidates Wallace Bennett for Senate, Sherm Lloyd for Congress, and Carl Buehner for governor. But who’s Hunt?
Teen-Age Republican / TARS —GOP button from 1966.
So, when you add Goode + Will + Hunt + Teen, you kinda get …
Good Will Hunting. The 1997 movie where Robin Williams won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. We tragically lost Robin Williams earlier this month.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Matthew Jetzt of Freehold, N.J. Matthew gets the coveted Political Junkie button.
