Nothing says "bottom tier" like Ohio presidents

The Speaker of the House is mad at the President for dissing one of its long string of forgettable presidents- and for not asking Congress, "May I?" so he could reply, "Hell, no!"
“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. McKinley served our country with distinction during the Civil War as a member of the Army. He made a difference for his constituents and his state as a member of the House of Representatives and as Governor of the great state of Ohio. And he led this nation to prosperity and victory in the Spanish-American War as the 25th President of the United States,” Boehner said in a statement Sunday night. “I’m deeply disappointed in this decision.”
The Washington Post reports people have been trying to change the name back to Denali since 1913.

  1. I haven't bothered to look it up but I thought the name was changed to Mt. McKinley because a whack job anarchist killed President McKinley. You know, we do stuff like that when one of our presidents is murdered.
