Finally, the obnoxious candidacy of Herman Cain can be put in the books. It was a nice run while it lasted, and this viral candidate will claim that the "liberal" media led to the downfall of his run, but ultimately they were the same ones who put Cain on the map. His rather outrageous statements and interesting internet campaign commercials would not have received any attention if it wasn't for the mainstream media. They might have used the coverage to poke fun at Cain, but this would benefit him by driving more conservatives to rally behind the Godfather's Pizza CEO. This "15 minutes of fame" gave his campaign some relevancy and, quite frankly, was the only thing that allowed Cain a remote chance at the Republican nomination.
