We Have A ScuttleButton Winner!

Forget about AIG bonuses. Now we're talking about the REAL deal: announcing the new ScuttleButton winner!

As you know, you don't need a government bailout to win. Instead, simply take one word or one concept per button, add 'em up, and you arrive at a saying or a name. That's all there is to it. No testifying before Congress, no perp walks, nothing remotely like that.

But ... don't forget ... you can't win unless you send in both your name and your city/state.

Also: The answer does not necessarily have to be political. For instance, a few puzzles back the answer was "Minnesota Twins" — not political at all, unless you're thinking Mondale and Humphrey instead of Killebrew and Oliva.

Last week's buttons, in case you forgot:

Keep God In America — A conservative button, circa 1960s, probably in response to the Supreme Court's ruling about prayer in schools.

Cheer Up They're Still Only 90 Miles Away — Another button from the right, the same time frame, reminding us that Fidel Castro and his Communist regime are only 90 miles from Florida's shore. (Yes, a lot of words on this button to choose from.)

Gimme Jimmy The Candidate — He never ran, but he did write. The actor/singer, known for the size of his nose (his nickname was the "Schnozzola"), wrote The Candidate in 1952.

So, when you add God + Only + Nose, you kind of get ...

God Only Knows.

The winner, selected at random among the correct responders, is (drum roll) ... Catherine Vivio of Norway, Mich.
