Oh, what a gift to John McCain. We've all seen commercials/infomercials like this before. If you just fork up $1,000, you can learn how to realize all of your dreams by learning how to get rich by applying for government grants. The hawkers claim you can send your kids to the best schools, live in that big house you always wanted, and live your dreams for the low, low price of $1,000 to attend the only conference on the planet designed for YOU.
I mean, aren't "government handouts" socialist? Aren't they "entitlements", something most Republicans are against?
I'd say McCain could make some hay over both points but then hypocrisy is perfectly acceptable in conservative circles.
