Is it possible to earn the " Strunk & White " Badge after earning the edit privilege?

It doesn't makes sense, because after you have earned the privilege, you can easily edit any number of posts you want and earn the badge just like that.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What's funny about this question is that before suggested edits where added in Jan 2011 you could only earn this badge if you had the edit privilege. – Some Helpful Commenter Jul 6 '12 at 15:37

Yes, it's possible.

The "Strunk & White" badge exists to encourage and incentivize editing. Just earning 2000 reputation and gaining the ability to edit without going through the Suggested Edit process doesn't necessarily imply that the user is a regular or capable editor.
