Monday Moustache: 9-9-Moustache

This marks the thirty-seventh post in a recurring segment on moustaches.

Today's moustache:

Herman Cain
Herman's moustache has been staring Third Strike in the face for months, taunting the Monday Moustache series for not posting it.

Herman's moustache is just like a Godfather's pizza: it's always fantastic, but it's even better when you're drunk at 2 a.m..

At hours earlier than 2 a.m., we've learned about the man behind the moustache over the past several months.
Herman's rise and fall in the Republican Presidential primaries has been one hell of a journey. The man rose from pizza-producing prominence, poor polling, and political punditry to the leader of the Presidentail primay race. All to soon after, allegations of innappropriate behavior during his restaurant days led to his quick exit to the race. Too saucy, Herman.
Still, the story of the Cain Train is one that will go down in the books. From his 9-9-9 tax plan, his proclivity towards quoting Pokemon songs, and his (late) endorsement by Stephen Colbert, Cain is nothing if not memorable. Now he has endorsed Newt Gingrich and we will see if that has the same influence as his 2000 endorsement of Steve Forbes.
The most tragic part of Cain's exit from the primary race is the resulting lack of diversity-- not a single candidate left has a moustache!!! C'mon, GOP!
Herman Cain's representation of the elite moustache community showed real character in an age with so few leaders sporting 'staches. What's more, Herman Cain advanced other moustaches; Cain's campaign manager Mark Block had a smokin' stache, seen in the infamous online ad.
So carry on, Herman Cain.... You might have forgotten your policy on Libya, but you will never be forgotten.
