Sarah Silverman has been urging young people everywhere to make the Great Schlep i.e. to “visit their grandparents in Florida, educate them about Obama, and therefore swing the crucial Florida vote in his favor.”
That’s a great strategy for winning Florida, but what about Ohio?
In Ohio we are going to need all of those young voters who registered this year to actually show up and vote.
So election day is a great time for all you grandparents (or parents with voting-age kids) in Florida and around the country to return the favor: Call your lazy-ass grandkids (or kids) in Ohio. Call them bright and early on the morning of Nov. 4th and remind them to vote.
Promise to send them a check if that’s what it takes. You have my permission to complain that they never visit enough – but you’d forgive them if they just got up and voted.
Don’t be afraid to call multiple times. Whatever it takes. Just make sure they get up and out of bed and on their way to the polls.
