50 Shades of Petraeus: SNL mocks sex scandal

Author, played by Cecily Strong, recites filthy biography of her lover Sketch featuring Jill Kelley mocks media coverage of Petraeus scandal Star Seth Myers describes story as 'a sexy new reboot of You've Got Mail'

When Paula Broadwell wrote the biography of her lover David Petraeus, she managed to keep out any hint of their relationship from the book. But when Saturday Night Live took on the notorious relationship during the opening sketch of last night's show, they reimagined it as a significantly more steamy tome similar to bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey.

Of course the liberal media is trying to change the subject.

This I don’t mind. Petraeus put himself in this position. He is lucky he is only getting laughed at. When you put yourself in a position for SNL to make fun of you, I don’t give any pity.

My bro-in-law works for an agency with three letters, and he saw some of the one trillion emails, all salaciously signed by him in the following symbol.

Anyone?

I have no sympathy for Petraeus either but that’s another subject.
