Jon Stewart Brings National Turkey 'To Justice'

Video after the jump...
Comedian Jon Stewart had a different idea of clemency for National Thanksgiving Turkey Cobbler, he said on Monday night during a bit on The Daily Show.

"I tracked down the turkey President Obama pardoned, and brought him to justice," Stewart declared as he flashed the photo above.

"Just because his powerful friends in Washington pardoned him, doesn't mean he won't be held accountable for his crimes," Stewart said of Cobbler.  "I brought him to justice."

President Obama's pardoned turkey is actually a white, broadbreasted fellow, unlike Stewart's photoshopped wild bird. Cobbler is now ensconced at Mount Vernon Estates and Gardens with his alternate Gobbler.

Stewart's bit is brief, and comes in at 1:00:
