In a post entitled "Adam Kinzinger: Rising Republican Star" The Weekly Standard introduces Illinois' 11th CD representative by retelling the hair-raising story of when Kinzinger saved a woman from a knife-wielding attacker:
"I hear this commotion and screaming and this girl is running at me across the street, and she’s just holding her throat, with blood pouring out,” he says. “I don’t know if you’ve been in a situation where you’ve separated from your body almost, because it’s just unreal, and that was one of those.” Running up behind the injured woman was a man, her boyfriend, wielding a knife and donning what Kinzinger called a “psycho look.”
At that moment, the future congressman had two thoughts in his mind. The first was that, if he tried to save this woman, he was probably going to be killed in the process.
