From Erika Bolstad in Washington D.C. --
From Gov. Sarah Palin's Twitter account: "Getting ready to tape shout-out for our awesome US troops serving overseas! Will be on 'Colbert Report' next month, broadcast from Iraq…"
Palin's spokesman Bill McAllister said she just taped the "shout out," and it is expected to air sometime in June. She will not actually appear live on the Comedy Central show, from Iraq. But the Colbert Report's website, Colbert Nation, hints the show and its host will be spending some time visiting the troops in the Persian Gulf: "Stephen got a special invitation from General Petraeus himself, and his location will be top secret!"
