The Color Purple

Purple is the color of the night for President Bush’s State Of The Union address.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Rep. Bobby Jindal is planning to demonstrate solidarity with Iraqi voters by dipping a finger in purple ink before President Bush’s State of the Union speech Wednesday.

In a letter to be circulated Wednesday among fellow lawmakers, Jindal, R-La., said he would have ink available for anyone attending the speech who wanted to make a gesture of support for Iraqis and “people throughout the world who seek freedom.”Personally I’d like to see the President deliver a line such as the following, “We stand with the people of Iraq in giving the finger to terrorists.” Then he would display his purple ink stained index finger.
