To Get Back at Obama, There’s a Petition to Name an Ohio Mountain After Sarah Palin

palinTo get back at President Obama for renaming a mountain that used to be named after a U.S. president from Ohio, there’s a petition to rename a mountain in Ohio after Sarah Palin.

No, seriously.

Earlier this week the president decided to rename Mount McKinley to Denali because 1) that was its original name, 2) the state of Alaska has recognized it as such for a while, and 3) President William McKinley had absolutely nothing to do with it.

That didn’t stop Republicans from criticizing the move, and now there is a petition on the White House website to get back at Obama by having an Ohio mountain named for Palin:

We propose to change the name of Campbell Hill to honor Alaska’s most famous governor, Sarah Palin.

If the people of Ohio feel it is their right to name Alaska’s highest mountain, then it would only be fitting for Alaska to rename Ohio’s highest peak.

The Palins had some thoughts, naturally, on the president visiting their home state and renaming the mountain. Bristol Palin said Obama shouldn’t be renaming mountains when there’s terrorist threats out there, while her mother mainly got snarky about it.
