We knew it was only a matter of time before the David Petraeus scandal got the Saturday Night Live treatment. Over the weekend, the controversy gave SNL enough fodder for two sketches -- one of which centered around Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite who brought the Petraeus affair to light.

In a mock episode of CNN's The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, the bit razzes the media for having such little B-roll of Kelly and checks in with “our never-used Tampa correspondent.” Then, a seedy-looking fake Tampa mayor extols the city’s virtues: cigars, tattoos, murders and Jill Kelley.

In case you missed it, here’s the sketch. When the rest of the world makes fun of Tampa, at least you’ll be in on the joke.
