We're gonna miss Herman Cain

This guy never really had a shot, and it has nothing to do with being a serial sexual harrasser or his woeful grasp of economics. Rather, it's that his signature items of apparel are all utter fail, from the ranger hat to the Matrix sunglasses and (most notably) the TV-preacher double-breasted suit. The latter, which was already associated primarily with finance moguls (you know, those poster-boys for the universally despised 1%) has now been ruined for another generation in much the same way that Monica Lewinsky killed the beret.

On the other hand, he's competing against a smug smarmy milquetoast and a raging redneck, so our obituary may be premature.
