No One Is Making "The Great Schlep"

Oh, really? Sarah Silverman's funny little web video urging Jewish kids visiting their Florida grandparents to convince them to vote for Obama was actually supposed to work? Like, someone honestly thought people were going to buy plane tickets at a moment's notice (in this economy?) just to maybe turn one or two McCain voters to the other side? Uh, apparently so, but unsurprisingly it hasn't worked.

According to The New York Times only about 100 people have actual made "the Great Schlep" down to Florida. Jeez, Jackie Mason got all worked up over nothing.

update: News Busters is pissed at Katie Couric for featuring the effort on her news cast.
