Now that we’ve deposed McKinley, lets rename Mt. Rushmore.

Who was Rushmore anyway?  A nobody.  He was an attorney who used to come to that location to hunt.  Look it up.

Of course, you could name it after the sculptor who carved those great faces into the Moutain.  That would mean naming it after  Gutzon Borglum.

So would it be Mt. Borglum or Mt. Gutzon?  Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue either way.

We can’t call it Mt. McKinley or even Mt. Obama, since there are already four other Presidents on it.

So what about Presidential Mountain?  That sounds pretty good.  But would we be offending the native Americans who lived there?  We wouldn’t want to do that.

What do you think of Mount Geronimo?  Mt. Sitting Bull?

Presidential Mountain it is!

Whew! This mountain naming business is hard work.
