Mayor Annise Parker to Appear on Colbert Report Tonight

In case you hadn't heard, Mayor Annise Parker will be a guest tonight on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report tonight, which airs locally at 10:30 p.m. after The Daily Show. The announcement of her appearance came earlier this week.

It should be interesting to see the interaction between the two. Parker, an openly gay mayor, should provide an interesting contrast to viewers who think of Texas more for executions, Dallas and Governor Perry's hair.

Full recap here tomorrow.
