Obama renames highest mountain in United States
There's no longer a "Mount McKinley." Now it's "Mount Denali." Why? A mountain named after a dead Irish republican isn't good enough?

Next thing ya know they'll be tearing down Mount Rushmore.

I'm surprised he didn't name it after himself.

I read that the locals had been calling it Denali for some time.

I'm sure he'll pat himself on the back for it, though.

People, really? I don't like Obummer, but this has nothing to do ith him. It was Mt. Denali to begin with. That's what it was originally called by the natives, it is in Denali national park. In 1917 it was renamed McKinley. In the 1970's Alaskans voted to change the name back to Denali, and that is what it is officially called in Alaska. Now the Feds are just catching up to what the VOTERS of the state want.Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

Hmm. I think that's even worse. It means even though this was settled forty five years ago, he actually felt only his endorsement on the name change would do. Or is it the media making spectacle out of it?

Alaska has been calling it Denali since they voted in the 70's, but Feds have been calling it Mckinley to this day. Feds are just playing catch up.Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

Yeah there's quite a few media outlets making it a spectacle. Far be it from them to sensationalize.

There is a Mountain of Denial, but it is much bigger, and located near the north Atlantic coast... It is in the middle of a special preserve designed to protect the North American Weasle-Ratbag. The preserve is called District of Columbia, Hehehe.

Wow Zagnut. That has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever seen in my life.

Do people realize that "Kenyan" is not a language? Kenyans speak English or Swahili, neither of which has a word that sounds like "Denali".

Denali is a purely Native American (who are the people who originally named the mountain) word which means "great one".
