Who Cares What A Mountain Is Named?

It’ll never come when you call anyway.

When was the last time you even thought about Mt. McKinley? When was the first time?

Alex Pappas reports:

House Speaker John Boehner said Monday he is “deeply disappointed” with President Obama’s decision to officially rename Mount McKinley to Denali, its traditional name, during a trip to Alaska to talk about the environment.

Boehner, like former President William McKinley, is from Ohio.

“There is a reason President McKinley’s name has served atop the highest peak in North America for more than 100 years, and that is because it is a testament to his great legacy,” Boehner said in a statement.

Out of all the reasons to slam Obama after six years in office, this comes in dead last. But I guess if Boehner can’t stop any of Obama’s other bad ideas from coming to pass, he might as well whine about a stupid mountain. Way to rally the troops, champ.

At least Obama didn’t name a mountain after himself. He’s saving that honor for one of his fans.
