Sarah Silverman, the comedian who has made headlines with her sometimes offensive and controversial humor, has joined together with The Great Schlep to mobilize young progressive Jews to boost Obama's standing amongst the increasingly influential Jewish vote in Florida, an important swing state which has frequently been the deciding factor in presidential politics.
The video is rife with Silverman's trademark humor and some NSFW language. So beware... or invest in some headphones.
I've been a big fan of Silverman since being introduced to her several years ago. I find her irreverent and refreshingly politically incorrect. Plus... I love Jews. What can I say, Jews and Asians make up the primary constituency in model-minority-ville.
It also should be noted that The Sarah Silverman Show has been consistently lauded by gay media groups for the inclusion of a distinctly non-stereotypical geeky gay couple as her best friends and regularly featured characters.
