Sarah Silverman's Indecent Proposal Video Asks Billionaires to Switch Sides

Sarah Silverman's Indecent Proposal video asks the billionaire Sheldon Adelson to support Barack Obama with his $100 million, instead of Mitt Romney.

Comedy star Silverman notes that many billionaires are backing Romney this election season, but she hopes to change the mind of only one by offering to scissor him (with her bikini bottoms on, of course) if he switches allegiances. She links a website, 'Scissor Sheldon,' telling fans and supporters to sign the petition to 'Stop Sheldon' and to help the video go viral -- in an effort to get the message of this massive imbalance of funds across.

Even though her proposal may not be entirely serious, it is a certainly creative way to rally support.
