Linda Tripp Gets Literary
Posted on Nov 13, 2008
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. I believe Sen. McCain is an American hero and a deeply honorable public servant, something one seldom sees in Washington. I also believe he could have been a strong president. 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.”
