‘SNL’ skewers Petraeus scandal (VIDEO)


"Saturday Night Live" did not shy away from the sex scandal that's rocked the Central Intelligence Agency, dedicating two full sketches and plenty of jokes on this week's episode to the Petraeus affair.

On the show's cold-opening, Paula Broadwell--played by newcomer Cecily Strong--read from her now infamous book on disgraced former CIA director Gen. David Petraeus, "All In," at Washington, D.C. bookstore Politics and Prose. The book reading soon turned awkward for the rapidly shrinking audience, with Broadwell's book sounding more like "Fifty Shades of Grey" than a military biography.

"Like most people," Broadwell said, "my feelings about erotic asphyxiation have been somewhat complicated."

"We'll be leaving this program now, since it's becoming uncomfortable," a C-SPAN host announced.

1. Wow.


I see that SNL hasn't lost its touch. I may have to put the TV back together.
