    I thought he was going to go after the governor's seat in Maryland. He's such a nut case, he might go after both at once.

    But the poor daughter. She mentions Brown University. If she's already admitted, can she get some kind of financial aid?

      If she is already accepted, she'll manage somehow.  Student loans, student aid, a year off to go work, part time attendance....

      People do it all the time.  Like many others, I paid my own way through college and while it makes it more difficult, if she is smart enough to get into Brown and she wants it enough, she'll figure out a way.

      In the meantime, whining about the cost of housing isn't going to get her anywhere.

        Does this girl have extended family who can support her?  Surely there are SOME sane people in the Keyes clan.

        When you couldn't get a real journalism job, there's Fox News.

      •  Ivies hand out need based aid (none)
        using a formula that (almost) always includes both parents income and assets.  Given Daddy's cash flow from his little mail order hate shop, his daughter won't be eligible for much other than cash advances on whatever credit cards she can drum up.
        This actually got me thinking, GOoPers are such cheap hypocritical bastards, maybe he's just doing this to avoid paying for her education and everything gets hunky dory after Brown approves a unique circcumstances adjustment to her aid package.
