Barack, Sarah Silverman and the brisket

The Jewish Council for Education and Research -- with a funny but foulmouthed assist from comedian Sarah Silverman -- has launched aimed at prodding Jewish grandchildren to visit their grandparents in Florida and convince them to vote for Barack Obama, to "swing the crucial Florida vote in his favor.

"Don’t have grandparents in Florida?," the website says, "Not Jewish? No problem! You can still become a schlepper and make change happen in 2008, simply by talking to your relatives about Obama."

It suggests ways to talk to one's nanna about Obama .. "besides loudly."

"If they vote for Barack Obama, they're going to get another visit this year," Silverman says in the video. "If not, just hope they stay healthy til next year."

Caution: Silverman's video comes with a parental advisory for salty language.
