We ran into several Jews at the Project A.L.S. Benefit Gala this week. A few of them were even old the perfect people to ask about Sarah Silverman's "Great Schlep," her plan for Jewish grandkids to urge their grandparents in Florida to vote for Obama. Matthew Broderick was skeptical: "I don’t know how you can convince an old person in Florida about anything." But when we complained to Silverman that our friend signed up for the Schlep but never got a response, she wasn't having it. "Why doesn’t he just go to fucking Florida?" she steamed. "What does he need? A Website?"
