The Great Schlep


"The Great Schlep aims to have Jewish grandchildren visit their grandparents in Florida, educate them about Obama, and therefore swing the crucial Florida vote in his favor." In the video, Sarah Silverman describes "some ways to talk to your grandparent about Obama ... besides loudly."


  1. Ms. Silverman is vulgar and offensive.

  2. Post-schlep update: Here's a
    news story describing one of the events. My favorite quote is from Michael Bender, a grandson addressing a crowd of more than 100 at his grandparents' retirement community in south Florida: "If Obama was elected, he said, then Bender would not worry so much about politics and 'would have more time to find a nice Jewish girl to marry.' Whether Mike Bender's schlep really changed any minds is anyone's guess, but the applause from the crowd was deafening."
