Sarah Silverman and The Great Schlep

In the past, I've mentioned my worries that older voters, in particular older Jewish voters, were expressing (mostly) irrational concerns about Barack Obama. A new organization is calling for Jewish grandchildren to make a concerted effort to talk to their bubbies and zadies about Barack Obama so that Florida won't elect Sen. McCain in November. Take a look at this video from spokesperson Sarah Silverman:

My grandparents died in the last decade, but I can hear in my mind how discussions of this election would go (especially with my paternal grandfather who was a bit hard of hearing so any any discussions of substance got very loud, even when we weren't arguing...). I don't have the chance to try to convince them, but I am working to convince other older Jews in my extended family. I hope that others are doing the same.
