Weinstein Launches Leo into Outer Space

Harvey Weinstein wants to follow-up arranging Michelle Obama’s guest appearance at the Oscars by launching Leonardo DiCaprio into outer space.

The Democratic leviathan was able to hustle from a bidder a cool $1.5 million that will be donated to an AIDS charity. Weinstein then topped that, bringing in $2.3 million for a second pair of seats. The private space shuttle service that DiCaprio and his merry band of moneybags will be using is Virgin Galactic, the fledgling space tourism venture that in 500 years will become the Galactic Empire, headed by wannabe Choom Gang member and international tycoon Richard Branson.
