You’d be hard pressed to find a decent amount of medicare-qualifying folks who know what a blog is… But a vlog?  Now, that’s pushing it.  Nevertheless, old school Jewish comedian Jackie Mason has tapped into the new-fangled youngsters’ technology like few of his peers.  But don’t let him fool you.  When it comes to politics, the generation gap is clear.  Jewcy recently featured a video and a follow-up of Sarah Silverman’s, "The Great Shlep."  While it surely produced many Yiddish-intoned guffaws over Rosh Hashanah dinner, it has also sparked a backlash from the aforementioned grandpa of Jewish comedy.  Mason’s take: Sarah’s got some chutzpah telling you how to vote.  She’s a sick yenta! (His words…)  We’ll let him tell you directly, and see what you think, since you’re the boss of your ballot.

Just to give a clear picture of Mason’s record on political commentary, have a look at this previous vlog entry of his, and then ask yourself what gap he’s closing.
