It’s ScuttleButton Time! – 5/1/14

Scuttle050214I don’t think I’ve ever been as humiliated as I was when Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling pointedly asked me not to bring anyone to the games who was playing the 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!

Good luck!

I Like Ike (with picture of gorilla) — Not sure what the ape has to do with this, but we do know that Dwight Eisenhower was elected president in 1952.

Jodi Rell Governor — Rell, a Connecticut Republican, became governor in 2004 following the resignation of Gov. John Rowland, who was caught in a corruption investigation.  She was elected to a full term in 2006, a landslide winner over Democrat John DeStefano.

Mark Schauer (pic) for Governor — Schauer, a former congressman, is the likely Democratic candidate for governor of Michigan in 2014.

So, when you add Ape + Rell + Schauer + Bring + May + Flower, you kinda get …

April Shower(s) Bring May Flower(s).  Yes, I cheated.  Again.  It should have been plural but it wasn’t.  So sue me.

And this week’s randomly selected winner is … John Challenor of Hayward, Calif.  John gets the coveted Political Junkie button.
