First came Sarah Silverman with a video for The Great Schlep, an organized effort to get young Jews across America to visit older relatives in Florida to convince them to back Obama [WARNING ADULT LANGUAGE]:

It seems only fitting that comic Sarah Silverman has had guest roles on both the vampy "V.I.P." and the geeky "Star Trek: Voyager." She can trade on her good looks, which she milked in her Hollywood exec role on the Fox sitcom "Greg the Bunny." But left to her own devices, Silverman,...
