Pinback button opposing George McGovern for president and satirizing the Eagleton Affair, 1972. Issued by Mountain Shadow Motel & Antique Shop, Branson, Missouri.

When asked if he stood behind his choice of Missouri Senator Thomas Eagleton for a running mate, despite revelations that Eagleton had undergone phychiatric treatment, McGovern responded, "1000%." A week later, Eagleton was unceremoniously dumped from the ticket in favor of Sargent Shriver. Distributed in Eagleton’s home state, this pinback was part of a Republican effort to keep the unpleasant affair before the public.
