Was Herman Cain dissed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg? You decide.

Bloomy declined to comment directly on the GOP candidate's chances after a ceremonial groundbreaking in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan Wednesday afternoon.

But he did take the time to make one wisecrack, drawing guffaws from the gaggle of dignitaries, ink-stained wretches and photogs who gathered to see him talk about the $500 million-plus Gotham West development project.

An attendee of the event asked Bloomberg during a Q&A session whether he believed the Herminator is a viable candidate, nodding to an ongoing sexual harassment scandal that has sent his poll numbers into a decline in recent days.

I don't know. I've never met Herman Cain, Bloomberg said, adding it what can be interpreted as a veiled dig at the former pizza executive, I've never had a Godfather's pizza. Is it any good?

Cain has campaigned well with the GOP base on a platform that emphasizes his business acumen at the helm of the Godfather's Pizza chain, which has as its motto A Pizza You Can't Refuse. But Bloomberg seemed to be lightly mocking the candidate on a day that saw a fourth woman come forward to accuse Cain of sexual harassment in a press conference held just across town.

Was Cain dissed by fellow businessman and former GOP member Bloomberg? It's all in the ears of the beholder.
