In last night's Saturday Night Live, a fictitious Iraq commander Gen. David Petraeus has his own take on the recent report given on progress in Iraq, particularly the 30,000-troop "surge," to the Senate Armed Services Committee.

"The Iraqi National Assembly finally approved a plan to extend its summer vacation by a month...Also, the Sunnis and the Shiites have agreed on a formula to share revenue from embezzled foreign aid and bribes paid to government officials."

Also included in the skit below: The status of the Sunni/Shiite softball league, a pointed question from the fictitious Senator Clinton about the audibility of sniper fire, a six-second CODE*PINK protest and mention of the Wheeling, West Virginia Applebees.

This video is from NBC's Saturday Night Live, broadcast April 12, 2008.
