Obama Waffles - It's Racism for Sale

It's just incredible.
Republicans really have no shame at all. They don't even bother to hide their racist beliefs - they're proud of it and intend to make a profit from it.
From the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Activists at a conservative political forum snapped up boxes of waffle mix depicting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama as a racial stereotype on its front and wearing Arab-like headdress on its top flap.
Values Voter Summit organizers cut off sales of Obama Waffles boxes on Saturday, saying they had not realized the boxes displayed "offensive material." The summit and the exhibit hall where the boxes were sold had been open since Thursday afternoon.
The box was meant as political satire, said Mark Whitlock and Bob DeMoss, two writers from Franklin, Tenn., who created the mix. They sold it for $10 a box from a rented booth at the summit sponsored by the lobbying arm of the Family Research Council.
I'm nearly speechless. We need to win this election big and keep these people as far from decision making roles as we can. Get out there and do something for a local candidate, folks.
