JS: I’m going to cut through the spin for you, sir. This is what I’m here for. There’s a lot of insinuation amongst the pundits, etc., about these controversies. The Rev. Wright controversy, the flag pin controversy…by the way, I’m wearing mine, it’s just pinned directly to my chest. I can tell you what the real concern is and you can answer the question here, right here, right now and put it all to bed.

BO: Right.

JS: Sir, we are concerned that ultimately, at the end of the day, if you are fortunate enough to get the Democratic nomination, fortunate enough to become President of the United States, will you pull a ‘bait and switch’, sir, and enslave the white race? Is that your plan? And if it is your plan, be honest, tell us now.

BO:That is not our plan, Jon. But I think your paranoia might make you suitable as a debate moderator.
