Collage of five pictures of Herman Cain holding up his fingers
Herman Cain, who sexually harassed one two three four five lots of women, will not be the senator from the great state of Georgia-Georgia-stan-stan
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain tells The Daily Caller that he will not run for the U.S. Senate in Georgia in 2014. [...]

“My attention will be on exposing the economic pain and suffering to come from a second Obama term, [rather] than on a decision Senator Chambliss made,” Cain said in an email provided to TheDC. “No, I’m not running!”

Obviously, this is some heartbreaking news. Herman Cain was the most entertaining Republican presidential candidate way back in the 2012 primary season of yore. Well, one of the most entertaining. Okay, hell, they were all pretty funny.

But Herman? The guy whose answer to everything is 9-9-9? The guy who believes there are two kinds of people—men and "other people"? The guy who was damn proud he couldn't name the president of "Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan"? The guy who turned "job offer" into a not-safe-for-work phrase? The guy who said that for every woman who has come forward to accuse him of sexual harassment—and there were many—there are "thousands" who haven't? The guy who, after being forced out of the Republican primary, endorsed "the people," then Newt Gingrich, then, finally, Mitt Romney?

Yeah. That guy. Damn shame he's decided to deprive us of the inevitable entertainment that might have been his run for Senate. Oh well.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
