Recently Sarah Silverman, the lovely but foul-mouthed comedienne, made a promotional spot for The Great Schlep. The Great Schlep is a campaign to have young Jews fly to the key election State of Florida, to visit their grandparents and persuade them to vote for Barack Obama. The theme of Ms. Silverman's pep talk to my junior co-religionists is that those Jewish grandparents would normally be voting for the Democratic candidate, and are hesitating in this case only because they are closet racists and because Obama has an Islamic name.
Jackie Mason does not suffer either fools or politically correct entertainers lightly, and Ms. Silverman would seem to qualify on both counts. For a good laugh, listen to what Jackie has to say, here.
