Sarah Silverman & The Great Schlep aim to get Jewish grandchildren to visit their liberal yet reluctant Obama-voting Jewish grandparents in Florida (November 4th is all about registering to vote, voting, and…location, location, location: swing states include Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Virginia, New Hampshire and Michigan)

and bribe/educate/encourage them to vote for Barack (a Hebrew name, Sarah tells us, didjewknow?)—thus swinging the crucial Florida vote in his favor. Don’t have grandparents in Florida? Not Jewish? No problem! You can still become a schlepper—spread this video. Check the video:
