By my count, there were seven reporters at the Steve Stockman hot tub party. But only engaged in YOLO journalism
It all came down to turnout. RT : Congrats, Kim Jong Un!
This should be a thing RT : Hunter S. Thompson did Gonzo Journalism. does journalism

But as I recall he's older than Krohn was. Krohn still holds the record!
After being shot in the arm, stomach and leg, he tumbled down a hill. Regaining consciousness, he told his men, "Nobody called off the war!"
Keep in mind that Inouye had already been shot in the chest, and that a Nazi had severed most of his hand from his arm
The ultimate OG Asian-American mil officer is, however, fmr Sen Daniel Inouye, who ripped a grenade from his severed arm to throw at Nazis

SANTORUM RE: RAILING ON OBAMA: "Get it out of your system. Because after we leave here, we've got a job to do. We've got to win."

NRA chief Wayne LaPierre leaves stage to the song BULLETPROOF: “you shoot me down, but I won’t fall. I am titanium!”
Someone needs to turn the bass down on this CPAC music.
LaPierre's speech, overdramatic as it was, is the one that has gotten the crowd most amped up of any speech today
LaPierre wants the crowd to cheer loud enough for them to hear at the "green rooms of MSNBC all the way to the White House"
NRA's Wayne LaPierre, to boos: "They're working to put another Clinton in the White House."
LaPierre: "no greater freedom than the right to protect our families with all the rifles, shotguns and handguns we want"
LaPierre: "NRA members will never submit or surrender to the national media."
LaPierre on the media: "They've never been honest about the NRA; they hate us."
LaPierre is not a fan of journalists. "Now it's all entertainment, ratings, personal celebrity, the next sensational story."
I have never heard any public figure cite skaters as a good thing before
LaPierre on the decline of America: "Neighborhood streets once filled with skateboards and laughter in the air are now filled with silence."
