Who stands to benefit the most from Carl Icahn’s new super-PAC? Carl Icahn.

Josh Hoxie

The nation’s political system just doesn’t have enough influence from the billionaire class. That was apparently the sentiment, absurd as it may sound, behind billionaire Carl Icahn’s recent decision to launch a super PAC with $150 million of his reported $21 billion fortune.

There's a scene in one of the Harry Potter films where the child gets on one of those two-tiered red London busses, and the driver is a deviant spirit. He has a voodoo head hanging from the windshield. The bus takes a wild, almost trans-dimensional ride until a very relieved Harry Potter is tossed out.

I'd like to see a scene that's a cross between something of this nature that involves lots of billionaires participating at one of those events at Bohemian Grove. They get taken for a "Spirit Ride" and essentially, all take unwitting part in the type of didactic ghostly encounters that precipitated Ebenezer Scrooge's transition from tight-wad Conservative to generous giver!

Once the billionaires get tossed off SAID bus, they will think differently, and put their money towards what would improve life for all those hungry Tiny Tim types who are out there... in abundance.

It's friggin about time!
