    On May 30, 2003, he reached the summit of Mount Everest "despite toes blackened with frostbite." He has climbed all seven of the Seven Summits: Mount Everest, Mount Elbrus, Denali, Mount Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, Mount Vinson, and Carstensz Pyramid—the tallest peaks in Asia, Europe, North America, Africa, South America, Antarctica, and Oceania respectively."

    He may be pot addled and dopey but his mountain climbing resume is nothing to be trifled with.

    I think it was around the same time Hillary was landing under sniper fire in Bosnia.

    It's encouraging that a Libertarian won such a high office.

    And to bring it back around to Everest... Remember when Hillary claimed she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary? So many lies to choose from but that's always been one of my favorites.

    Maybe Gary Johnson should seek to be President of the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation first.

    Did he pick up his trash that he brought with him up there or did he just add to the growing landfill pile?

    Maybe oxygen deprivation explains his Aleppo and world leader naming moments.
