Comedian Sarah Silverman appeared on Countdown with Keith
Olbermann this week to promote “The Great Schlep”, a campaign to lobby young Jewish voters to visit their grandparents in Florida and convince them to vote for Barack Obama. In the campaign’s video Silverman says these key voters in Florida “go by many aliases: “Nanna, Poppa, Zayde, Bubbe, plain old Grandma and
Grandpa,” and they are vital to a Democratic victory in November, since
97 percent of them traditionally vote. Silverman said she is worried about the
election for a few reasons, many of which have to do with another Sarah
who has been in the news of late.
