(Newser) – The Obama-equals-Hitler folks have left us a puzzle. Vandals carved "I swastika Obama"—with the swastika facing the wrong way—on, of all places, the 18th hole of a country club golf course 40 miles north of Boston. It's unclear who did it or even when, but a club manager speculates that it might have been carved with a golf cleat. The Secret Service and Massachusetts police are investigating.

The daughter of the club's owner yesterday covered the desecration with a large cardboard heart. President Obama is due to appear in Boston at a fundraiser for Gov. Deval Patrick next week.
