If you’ve noticed these 9-9-9 posters around campus, and wondered what they signify, here it is: CUCR is bringing Herman Cain to campus to speak. More ridiculous than Ahmadinejad take two? You decide. Full email below:

To the editors at Bwog and Spec:

The Columbia University College Republicans are excited to announce that former presidential candidate Herman Cain has graciously accepted our invitation to speak at Columbia this semester!  After several months of negotiations, we have secured Mr. Cain to speak at 7:00pm on Tuesday, April 10th in Low Rotunda.  As per university policy, Mr. Cain will not be endorsing any political party or candidate; however, we have requested that he speak about his tax reform plan, his reflections on the Republican presidential primary, and his experiences as a black conservative in America.

We would especially like to thank the Young Americans for Freedom for their generous financial and organizational support for this event.  We would also like to thank the Columbia Political Union for their cosponsorship.

Tickets will be available through the TIC on Monday.  Seats are available for free for anyone with a CUID, but hurry — space is limited! Also starting on Monday, tickets can be reserved online at http://www.cuarts.com/calendar/view/type/4/event_id/13364.
