For months, my husband has been kvetching about how young Jews need to step to it and use either reason or the blackmail of affection to get their grandparents, particularly those basking in Florida, to vote for Barack Obama. Thankfully, Sarah Silverman’s on it now with The Great Schlep.

Jackie Mason has just released a video in which he stumps for McCain, claims Obama has "accomplished nothing," and calls Sarah Silverman a "sick yenta." http://www.heebmagazine.com/blog/view/1058
