In a conference call with staffers, Herman Cain said it’s time to “reassess” whether or not he should continue his campaign for the Republican nomination.
This is just the latest laugh out loud moment in a campaign that’s been a joke from the beginning.
It started out with his nonsensical “9-9-9” plan, which was nothing but a pure gimmick which wouldn’t work, didn’t add up, and nobody – including Cain himself – could explain.
It hit a bumpy road with allegations from four different women, two of whom came forth publicly, that he had sexually harassed or maybe even assaulted them when he was president of the National Restaurant Association. Cain’s only defense, after trying to blame it on the media, was to call them all liars.
It went downhill fast with his appalling display of ignorance about foreign policy: when Cain showed he didn’t know where Libya was, whose side we were on, or whether Moammar Qaddafi was alive or dead.
And it crashed when woman #5 came forward to document a 13-year extramarital affair that only ended when he decided to run for president.
Let’s face it. Herman Cain was never a serious candidate. And shame on anybody in the media who pretended he ever was.
That’s my parting shot for today.
