The Great Schlep

My parents aren’t grandparents yet. And this would be a really awkward way to tell them I’m pregnant, which I’m not. Don’t worry, Mom.

Nonetheless I’m going to show them this video from the Jewish Council for Education and Research and offensively funny comedian Sarah Silverman about the Great Schlep. It’s “aim” is to get young Jews to go to Florida and talk to their grandparents about voting for Obama.

It’s hilarious, but when you think about it, rather offensive to those of us who don’t have living grandparents anymore… and to black people.
