Linda Tripp Gets Literary

Posted on Nov 13, 2008

Channeling his muse: Actor John Goodman (pictured) suited up as Linda Tripp on “Saturday Night Live” at the height of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal.

Blast-from-the-past alert! The world has undoubtedly been waiting to hear the sage words of former Monica Lewinsky confidante Linda Tripp concerning the historic election of America’s first black president, and luckily, she has delivered, complete with a literary allusion to Alice Walker.

Interested in hearing what Tripp had to say of the recent election (yes, she’s a week late in returning our e-mail), Tripp relayed the following thoughts: “I am so very proud that as a nation we might finally be getting it right.

That said, I believe President-elect Obama possesses an instantly recognizable purity of soul that, coupled with his brilliance, and, of course, his eloquence, brought quite unimaginable and long-awaited magic to the country, transforming red and blue states, quite literally, into ‘The Color Purple.’ I believe the entire country will stand behind him.”

I don’t like Mrs. Tripp, she is underhanded, manipulative, self serving and genuinely just not a person with purity of the soul. I still recall the color purpled bruise her 15 minutes of fame caused America.

Purity of soul?!  I, for one, never believed that Obama could be trusted.
