They'll just continue to call it Sunrise Mountain anyway.

WHY HAVEN'T THE "PATRIOTS" AT FOXNEWS RENAMED THEIR NETWORK AFTER REAGAN YET? WHY DO THEY HATE AMERICA, OUR TROOPS, AND PUPPIES?

Chuck Muth is a RINO, a Communist and most assuredly a craven craver of men's naughty bits.

A True Conservative would not stop until the state itself was named Reagan, with its capital Reagan City, its biggest city Las Reaganas set amid the Reagan Desert, the Lake Reagan ski resorts nestled in the Sierra Reagan Mountains studded with Giant Reagania Trees and the sad northern gambling town of Mondaleo.

He called it a "cheap, petty, partisan political stunt."

He would know.
 
2013-12-09 11:48:35 AM  
FTFA: Muth told the Review-Journal he's concerned the move could sideline "Mount Reagan" indefinitely, even if the bill doesn't pass. The next time, he told the newspaper, "Harry (Reid) can put a bill in to name it Snoopy Peak."

Why all the hate?

From the Original Article: Even if Titus' bill goes nowhere in the House, Muth is afraid she may have hit on a way to keep the Mount Reagan proposal trapped in limbo forever...Titus has gotten the better of Muth before. In 1996, then state Sen. Titus easily fought off an election challenge from Muth in a heated race that focused on the state's tax structure.

Ah, I see.

Given that he's seeking Norquist's assistance, I'd say yes.  Yes he would.

So Clinton gets a blowjob and he's worse than Hitler but Reagan makes deals with our enemies and known terrorists and he's our greatest President. Sounds about right.

The interesting angle is actually the Las Vegas Review-Journal's not so subtle suggestion that somehow its surprising or illegitimate for Congress to actually pass bills that name things. Like this kind of thing doesn't happen all the time.

From the Original Article: A proposal to name the peak of Frenchman Mountain after former President Ronald Reagan has been scuttled, and all it took was an act of Congress.Rep. Dina Titus, D-Las Vegas, has effectively derailed the official naming process with a simple, one-page bill in the House...It turns out the will of Congress trumps any action by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, which is usually the final arbiter of such things.

Hypocritical bullshiat. Last September, there was a move in Congress to rename Mount McKinley, as in President William McKinley, a Republican who actually was  martyred through assassination no less, to "Denali." I don't remember Chuckie Baby getting all uptight about that, or anyone on Fox stringing up Lisa Murkowski about it either.

Its different. Reagan sent them a Bible and a cake too. So he had that going for him, which was nice.

Ok, Republicans? Your Reagan fetish is kinda creeping the rest of us out.
 
2013-12-09 12:31:36 PM  
Muth plans to take up the issue with well-known conservative activist Grover Norquist, who for years has tried to affix Reagan's name to landmarks, to figure out the next step.

I wonder if Grover named his small, flaccid penis "Ronald Reagan"?
 
2013-12-09 12:31:45 PM  
Hmm, an appropriate, timeless name for a peak, or arbitrarily renaming it after a hypocritical monster for shamelessly partisan reasons...   tough call.

Don't forget using the CIA to funnel cocaine into the country, particularly the inner cities where it could be reduced to a smokable base via a very easy and efficient cooking method, thus making the end product cheaper and easier to distribute.

Then using that drug to create a 100-1 sentencing ratio between this "new form" of cocaine that is molecularly indistinguishable from powder cocaine, and using the at-the-time MANDATORY federal sentencing guidelines to fill our prisons with young urbanites.

And those prisons? Recently privatized and staffed by employees of Reagan cronies.

Remove a potential Democratic voting bloc, fill private coffers with government money to essentially babysit a class of criminals created by the government. Support right wing terrorism in Central America with the profits of illegal arms sales to a hostile government.

Ronnie Raygun is the author of all of our current problems. His name should be anathema.

Rename a mountain after Ronald Reagan? Well, if we're going to try and do that, why not rename a few monuments after James Buchanan and Andrew Johnson? Maybe a few airports, too.
 
2013-12-09 12:46:46 PM  
Let's see... name it after RONALDREAGANOHGODICAMEALITTLE or after Maude Frazier, a native Nevadan who pushed to found what would become the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and who was the first female Lt. governor of the state.

No, Maude was a Democratboohissevil, so the latter's the political move.
 
2013-12-09 12:46:49 PM  
If by 'greatest' they really meant 'one of the worst 3 or 4', then I agree.

Naming it something like "Mount Frazier" is a cheap political stunt.

Whereas naming it "Mount Reagan" is more of an expression of a personal wish.

He also just completely made up shiat about how terrifying the Soviet Union was, so much so that the Soviet Union actually started getting afraid of us and building up in anticipation/defense.  All of that shiat about how close we were to nuclear war with the Soviet Union, yeah you can thank Saint Reagan.

News flash: It's not easy to rename mountains. Even when your state board approves it, there's a strong chance the national people won't. For a relatively recent example, see Squaw Peak in Arizona.

Doesn't it cost a lot of money to rename stuff?  Maps will have to be changed, road signage, etc.

It doesn't seem like a very conservative thing to do.
