At the 2008 Value Voters Summit sponsored by the Family Research Council, they sold boxes of waffles with Presidential candidate Barack Obama pictured on the box. One with a caricature of Barack Obama and another with him pictured with a turban on.
The boxes had phrases on them such as "Obama Waffles" and "Waffling the World Over". The box with him pictured wearing the turban said "Point box toward Mecca for tastier waffles".
The reporter said: "I asked the 'chef' if he was at all concerned that this might be viewed as a white man putting a black man into a frying pan? He laughed and said, 'I hope so.'" The event featured speakers such as Lou Dobbs, Joe Gibbs, and others.
