It was fun while it lasted but it's officially over for Mr. 9-9-9.
No, Herman Cain has not announced yet that he's ending his never-had-a-chance bid for the GOP presidential nomination, but he has said this:
"It ain't over till it's over."
Which, of course, is the death knell.
Ever since Yogi Berra said that (or at least was reputed to have said that), a zillion other underdogs have uttered that mumbo-jumbo.
Alas, a zillion out of a zillion times, there was no comeback.
Good rule of thumb: As soon as somebody says "It ain't over till it's over," you know for certain that it's over.
Herman was good for a laugh, but he can now return to reality. Which, he might tell you, is nowhere near Libya.
