What a Long Strange Tripp It’s Been

Your flowery, fluffy, feelgood, skipping through the poppies in Obamatopia quote-of-the-week comes to us courtesy of Linda Tripp, who you may remember as the former interpreter for Monica Lewinsky back when Monica was being rude enough to try and speak into FBI tape recorders with her mouth full.

Tripp weighed in recently on the election of Barack Obama. I wish I had some pancakes to put all this syrup on:

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.’

Sure it’s a bunch of new-age tripe, but at least it sounds a lot more eloquent than “Oh my God, you blew the president?”

Judging from Tripp’s statement, I think it’s safe to assume that she’s spent the years subsequent to the Clinton administration reading lots of Maya Angelou books.

I do agree with Linda though that we are now “purple” states. That’s often the color taxpayers turn to when they’re in the process of being squeezed to death.
