Scissor Sheldon!

I used to really dislike Sarah Silverman. She can be raunchy as hell and sometimes she takes stuff too far. But after getting into her show and later reading her bookThe Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee, I decided she ain't so bad. And I started to find her pretty hilarious.

So you'll have to forgive me for loving her latest campaign: Scissor Sheldon.

I don't have a transcript, but in the video, Silverman shares that she has an indecent proposal for billionaire Sheldon Adelson who has pledged $100 million to Romney. She suggests that if he gives that $100 million to Obama instead, she'll--well she won't have sex with him (because they're not married, obvi!) but she will scissor him while wearing a bikini bottom.

It's absurd, but so are the facts behind the Romney campaign, and his biggest supporters, which Silverman hopes to highlight. As she shares about Adelson at
  • He’s totally open about buying elections. He said he’s “against very wealthy ­people attempting to or influencing elections. But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it.”
  • He’s willing to do “whatever it takes” to defeat Obama including “limitless” donations to Romney’s campaign.
  • He likes his casinos to be loan-shark and gangster-friendly.
  • He is under investigation by the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission and the target of a civil lawsuit.
  •  I guess if you're going to be a really absurd comedian and make people cringe, it might as well have a larger, greater purpose. Good on ya, Silverman.
