The Great Schlep
Since Sarah Silverman already reminded us of the Jewish vote's importance in Florida (let's pray for not one single hanging chad this November), LA Times' Joel Stein schleped to the Southeast to do his mitzvah: talk to the grandparents about voting for Obama. Though my grandfather lives in Florida for half the year, he's not an American citizen (only Canadian), so any persuasive speech I could give would not have any weight this time around (did it ever?). To all you Jewish grand kids with American grandparents: schlep on down to the FL or at least pick up the phone and make your case for Obama!
