Let the record show thqta I posted the OP before the Daily Show aired.
The Daily Show picked up on the same thing as I did about her waiter comment. And the Daily Show got the quote from her deposition correct because they apparently had access to the text. My version was a little off (but I got the gist right).

During the deposition, Deen mentioned that she had gotten the idea of African American waiters for her brother's plantation-themed wedding from a restaurant she had visited, where middle aged African American male waiters were dressed in white jackets and black bow ties. (Sounds more like dinner jackets to me than house slave garb, but what do I know? Dinner jackets are appropriate for, well, dinner, if you're being formal. While all the waiters were African American, though, is something else.)

Her questioner asked whether there was any chance she had slipped when discussing this and used the N word.

Deen's reply was: No, because that's not what these men were. They were professional black men, doing a fabulous job." (referring to the d waiters in white jackets at the restaurant she had visited.)
