Yeah, Obama just chose a funny word for a mountain. Funny also too how the word he chose for the mountain just happens to be located in something called 'Denali' National Park. What are the odds? Just a coincidence I'm sure. I also noticed this item below which appears on the menu for Prospectors Pizzeria & Alehouse, Denali National Park, Alaska.

A sure indicator of the extent to which the Latinization of western culture has metastasized. The next thing you know the Italians will be putting anchovies on our pizzas and the Joos will be moving in and putting salmon on bagels schmeared with cream cheese! What will we tell the children?
Poor McKinley. He wouldn't have known a margherita from a margarita. Of course, he never visited Alaska either. He was from Niles, Ohio. The highest mountain in Ohio is a pile of old tires outside of Akron.
"Getting up here, I say it is the best road trip in America, soaring through nature's finest show. Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun. And then the extremes. In the winter time it's the frozen road that is competing with the view of the ice-fogged frigid beauty. And then in the summertime, such extreme summertime, about 150 degrees better than just some months ago, than just months from now, with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves & merciless rivers that are rushing & carving & reminding us that here, Mother Nature wins. It is as throughout all Alaska, that big wild good life teeming along the road that is north to the future." ~ Makeshifty Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, July 26, 2009
