Sarah Silverman Offers to ‘Scissor’ Romney’s Biggest Financial Supporter

With another election year upon us, comedienne Sarah Silverman has returned with a follow-up, we suppose, to her 2008 multi-award-winning, politically-themed collaboration with Droga5, “The Great Schlep.” We’re checking with the Droga camp to see if they are still involved, but in the meantime, here’s Silverman and the Schlep Labs’ “Scissor Sheldon,” in which the funny lady vows to “scissor” Mitt Romney‘s loaded, apparent #1 fan, Sheldon Adelson, if he switches his financial support to President Obama. If you don’t know what she means by scissoring, let Silverman explain. The “Scissor Sheldon” site also includes fun facts and news updates about the Vegas money man as well as a petition. And if you’re in the office, maybe throw some headphones on if you’re going to view the clip.

Update: Sources familiar with the matter tell us that Droga5 was NOT involved with this particular effort.

Update 2: This efforts heralds the launch of the aforementioned Schlep Labs, which was created for individuals to post their ideas for mobilizing Jewish voters on behalf of President Obama. The Labs comes with a Tumblr site and a not-so-Romney-friendly original song.
