Sarah Silverman says 'Tell Florida Grannies to vote for Obama'

This funny lady makes a case for all young Jewish folk to travel to Florida (The Great Schlep) and convince their grandparents to vote for Obama.

Silverman provides talking points and tips such as threatening to not visit the elders again for a year.

There's a Facebook page with almost 5,000 members. Meetings across the country are scheduled for Oct. 10, but as of Friday, no one has signed up to attend the meetings in Fort Lauderdale, Tamarac or Palm Beach. Let's see if that changes once this clip goes viral.

About the author
The Internet: It's like your parents. It cares for you, feeds you, lets you sleep in its bed when you're awake at night... it's always there. Our solemn mission at "Thank you, Internet" is to give it a phone call once in a while, compliment it on its watercolor drawings and buy it birthday cards - metaphorically speaking, of course. Your job is to sit back and enjoy our frenzied attempts to celebrate said Internet, in all it's weirdness, utility and blatant stupidity. By the end of your visit, you too will be saying, "Thank you, Internet."

For him, it's a crossroads where college humor and the most valuable scholarly information can be found and, in some cases, even melded.
