    “A BBC film sheds startling new light on the underage sex case against the director,” writes David Gritten in the Telegraph:

  • VIDEO: Sarah Silverman talks trash to back Barack

    By The Web Guy

    September 25, 2008 | 3:13 pm

    Once again, Sarah Silverman steps up to the Hollywood Jew home plate and knocks one out of the park.  Go L.A. !

    In this video for The Great Schlep, the effort to get young Jews to visit retired relatives in Florida and convince them to vote for Barack Obama, Sarah uses bad language to promote smart ideas.

    Rough language warning.

    Hollywood Jew hat-tip to Brad A. Greenberg who beat me to this choice video morsel.

    Thanks, amigo!
