Ken Rudin's Political Junkie

krpoliticaljunkie.com — With every trick there is always a treat. At least today. Hopefully, you saw our Halloween "Button of the Day" on Instagram . Now it's time to solve this week's 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.

But there's a new ScuttleButton puzzle out today.

Ken Rudin's Political Junkie

krpoliticaljunkie.com — Yes, yes, it's pretty sad - and frightening - that the Secret Service somehow allowed a person to jump the fence of the White House and get into the president's quarters.

How Senators Up This Year Voted On Arming Syrian Rebels

krpoliticaljunkie.com — Here's how senators up in 2014 voted on President Obama's plan to train and arm Syrian rebels. The measure passed on Thursday by a vote of 78-22. (The House passed it the day before...
