What Daily Show bit am I remembering?

When Colbert was still on The Daily Show he did a bit pretending to be, I believe Hunter S Thompson when covering the beginnings of the war in Iraq or Afghanistan. He wore a safari type hat that was pinned to one side, along with a cravat or cravat-like scarf. Can anyone find this? I'm sure I saw it on thedailyshow.com, but it might have come from youtube.

If you can't find it, or even if you can, does anyone remember who the parody was? I don't remember Hunter S Thompson wearing the outfit he was wearing, but it felt very Hunter S Thompson-esque. I also don't remember him covering any wars, but I'm far from a Thompson expert. Thanks!
