SNL Obama skit becomes viral hit

It's a show that has been talked about for days now, many thanks to Lady Gaga's "s-bomb" and an appearance from Madonna. But the real impact of the latest SNL seems to be a viral video on the Web, depicting President Barack Obama's accomplishments, or lack thereof.

The video is believed to have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times so far on Hulu and the NBC Web site, according to Mashable, and it's the first viral hit for SNL since the Tina Fey/Sarah Palin routines during the election campaign.

If you haven't seen the Obama accomplishments video, here it is, thanks to NBC. It even works in Chicago's Olympic bid:

As expected, Twitter users were all over this one, especially in Chicago, which is mentioned in the routine. While many enjoyed the skit, tweets show that not everyone did:
