We welcomed in the first week of summer by watching a potential presidential candidate implode right before our eyes. And we saw a true national icon leave us well before his time.
For those of you who are weary, disheartened and exhausted on this can't-come-soon-enough Friday, I only have three words for you:
And here's how to play the game, which is featured every Friday on the Political Junkie blog.
It's a rebus. Simply take one word (or concept) per button, add 'em up, and, hopefully, you will arrive at a famous name or a familiar expression. (And seriously, by familiar, I mean it's something that more than one person on Earth would recognize.)
And don't focus on a political answer. It doesn't necessarily have to be political, though it could be.
A correct answer chosen at random gets his or her name in this column. Personally, I can't imagine a greater honor.
You can't use the comments box at the bottom of the page for your answer. Send submission (plus your name and city/state -- you won't win without that) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's the answer to last week's puzzle.
And, by adding your name to the Political Junkie mailing list, you will be the first on your block to receive notice when a new puzzle goes up on the blog. Sign up at email@example.com. Or you can make sure to get an automatic RSS feed whenever a new Junkie post goes up by clicking here.
Good luck, have fun, and happy Friday!
