And if you ask Boehner if the shutdown was YOLO enough, he will say:

"The Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God. Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to Jesus."

12. Rep. Alan Grayson: For insinuating that MSNBC host Martin Bashir was collaborating with the tea party.

"And the point I'm making to you, Martin, is that if you don't speak out against it, then in effect, you're collaborating with it. And, in fact, if you give someone like me a hard time for speaking out against it, then maybe you're collaborating with it.

16. Rep. Keith Ellison: For accusing Sean Hannity of "yellow journalism" on his own show.

"Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen. It’s absurd... what you just displayed was not journalism, it was yellow journalism."

22. Rep. Trey Radel: For going full YOLO.
