In a speech today, Herman Cain announce that he was “suspending” his campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination. R.S. McCain has a correct interpretation…
2:10 p.m. ET: My 12-year-old son Jefferson asked, ‘What does ‘suspending’ mean?” It means “quit.” Cain will still be on the ballot in several states. He could, if he chose, resume the campaign at some future point, but in general, “suspend = quit.”
The good news? J.D. Gordon is now unemployed.
More good news? My “sources close to the campaign” can now speak on the record about who was responsible for screwing up.
And finally, for those of my friends worried about my future diplomatic career, it’s still morning in Vanuatu. IYKWIMAITYD.
