Actor Samuel L. Jackson, with his resonant voice and imposing presence, was the perfect choice to record the audiobook version of the bestselling children's book for adults, "Go the F-- to Sleep. " Today, Jackson riffs on the title in a political video, "Wake the F-- Up," which calls for 2008 Obama supporters to become active in the presidential campaign. He pops up alarmingly in a suburban family's home, listing things they might not like about Mitt Romney and exhorting them to -- well, you know.
