This Week's ScuttleButton Winner: Kevin McVicker of Alexandria, Va.

Tomorrow's Political Junkie segment on Talk of the Nation is devoted to a review of 2010: the best ads, the best quotes, the most memorable events.

An early look at the agenda for the show indicates that, once again, ScuttleButton has failed to make the cut.

Still, if nothing else, at least Santa has a ScuttleButton winner to visit this week.  And that winner came up with the correct solution by figuring out last week's buttons:

McCarthy for President — Minnesota Sen. Gene McCarthy challenged President Lyndon Johnson for the Democratic nomination in 1968.

Tom Gill Governor — Gill unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination in Hawaii in the 1970 and 1974 primaries.

All the Way With LBJ — President Lyndon B. Johnson was elected in a landslide in 1964.

And so, when you add Gene + Gill + All The Way — remember, I said that you could include several words on one button — you might end up with ...

Jingle All The Way.  Hey, I'm trying to get into the holiday spirit, so don't get on me for bending the rules.

This week's winner, chosen completely at random, is (drum roll) ... Kevin McVicker of Alexandria, Va.
