Who knew Droga 5 was behind "The Great Schlep"?
Maybe you've seen Sarah Silverman's video "The Great Schlep", above (not necessarily safe for work), which urges Jewish grandchildren to visit their grandparents in Florida and plead with them to vote Obama. (And withhold further visits this year unless that condition is met.) What I didn't know, until I read The New York Times this morning is that Droga5 co-produced it. Among other reasons Silverman thinks everyone should vote for Obama is that, "He's honest and he's kind and quite frankly he's probably our last hope of ending this country's reputation as the assholes of the universe." There's also a semi-serious Web site, that asks people to "Donate to the Schlep" and has some cool schlep swag (schlep schwag?).
