14. The golfer-in-chief's post birthday round at Andrews Air Force Base this weekend was upstaged -- by his Dream Team style pickup game with the likes of Grant Hill, Shane Battier, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony. And lest you think President Obama is the only politician whose rounds are scrutinized, the Blue America Political Action Committee took on House Minority Leader John Boehner, who plays to a 7, with a billboard near Boehner's Cincinnati area neighborhood that asks, "When was the last time you golfed 119 times in one year?" Boehner's office said the number 119 is false but FOXnews.com reports he does have a glass filled with personalized tees for visitors to his office. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi even grabbed a few.

FOX election blog:

Golf is a big part of Boehner's persona. He golfs with a seven handicap. A glass cup just outside his Capitol office sports personalized tees that Boehner hands out to visitors. Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) collected a handful of them before she met with the Ohio Republican before a joint event earlier this year.

Fox says we spent 80,000 on the billboard. Hmmm, they didn't ask anyone of us to verify that.

I want one of those Boehner golf tees. Do you think Boehner will send me one if I ask? Why don't you call his office and ask for one too, especially if you live in his district.
