The Great Schlep, Sarah Silverman, Barack Obama, and Jews have a mission this electionâ€¦to win Florida! So make the great schlep over to Florida and tell your grandparents to vote for Barack Obama! Sarah Silverman has done a great job with this video. Itâ€™s fairly entertaining without being too silly or stupid. Itâ€™s hard to ignore all the support for Barack these days. I mean, reallyâ€¦does John Mccain have a chance? Where are all his supporters? I hear more about Palin these days than John Mccainâ€¦kind of disappointng.
Sarah Silvermanâ€™s Great Schlep Video for Obama
The Great Schlep Transcript by Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: If you knew that visiting your grandparents could change the world, would you do it? Of course you would. Youâ€™d have to be a douche-nozzle not to. Hey, itâ€™s Sarahâ€¦(long pause)â€¦Silverman.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: If Barack Obama doesnâ€™t become the next president of the United States, Iâ€™m gonna blame the Jewsâ€¦I am. And I know youâ€™re saying like, â€śOh my God, Sarah, I canâ€™t believe youâ€™re saying this. Jews are the most liberal, scrappy, civil rights-y people there are.â€ť Yes, thatâ€™s true. But youâ€™re forgetting a whole large group of Jews that are not that way, and they go by several aliases. Nana, Papa, Zaide, Bubbe, plain old grandma and grandpa. These are the people who vote in Florida. And the Florida vote can make or break an election. If you donâ€™t think thatâ€™s true, why donâ€™t you think back to two elections ago when a little man named Al Gore got fucked by Florida.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: Iâ€™m making this video to urge you, all of you, to schlep over to Florida and convince your grandparents to vote Obama. It can make the difference. Explain to them that weâ€™re all the same inside. You know you could compare an elderly Jewish woman like Nana to a young black man. They may seem totally different, but on paper theyâ€™re the same.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: I mean think about itâ€¦track suits! Letâ€™s start there. They both love track suits. They canâ€™t get enough of them. Uhhhhâ€¦what else. Car of choice? The cadillac. Theyâ€™re both crazy about their grandkids. What else? Theyâ€¦they like things and bling and money and jewelry and stuff. Uhh, they both say â€śyoâ€ť all the time. Or Jews go right to leftâ€¦â€ťoy.â€ť Uhh, what else? Theyâ€¦ummâ€¦all their freinds are dying.
Black man: Noâ€¦noâ€¦(leaves)
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: That is true in general.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: You know why your grandparents donâ€™t like Barack Obama? Because his name sounds scary. It sounds Muslimâ€¦which heâ€™s obviously not. Yes, Barack Hussein Obamaâ€¦itâ€™s a super fucking shitty name. But, youâ€™d think that somebody named Maneschevitz Guberman might understand that.
Sarah Silverman & the great schlep: The name Barack is Hebrew wordâ€¦it means lightning. And I would much rather have a president whoâ€™s name means lightning than a president named John whose name means toilet or a guy who fucks hookers.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: Here are some fun facts: Barack Obamaâ€™s foreign policy is much more stabilizing than John Mccainâ€™sâ€¦and much better for Israel. He wants to protect social security. His brisket is beyond. Itâ€™s beyond. Heâ€™s circum-supersized.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: You donâ€™t have to use factsâ€¦Use threats. Thereâ€™s nobody more important or influential over your grandparents than their grandkidsâ€¦you. If they vote for Barack Obama, theyâ€™re gonna get another visit this year. If not, letâ€™s just hope they stay healthy until next year.
Sarah Silverman & the great schlep: Barack Obama is the goodest person weâ€™ve ever had as a presidential choice. Heâ€™s honest and heâ€™s kind, and quite frankly, heâ€™s probably our last hope of ending this countryâ€™s reputation as the assholes of the Universe. So, please go to this website and get your fat Jewish asses on a plane to Floridaâ€¦Love, Nana.
Sarah Silverman, the great schlep: Letâ€™s seeâ€¦vote for Obama, gonna visit grandmama. Vote for Mccain, to me youâ€™re a shit stain. I just made that upâ€¦off the top of my head. Yeah, Iâ€™m proud of myself.
