Miley Cyrus generates tweets as a sexy Michele Bachmann on ‘SNL’
Needless to say, the 20-year-old pop star’s performance, which includes her licking an Abraham Lincoln doll and twerking with Boehner while singing a chorus riffing on her popular “We Can’t Stop” tune, is generating a lot of buzz on the interwebs.
On Sunday morning the unlikely Google combo of “Miley Cyrus Michele Bachmann” pulled up more than 400,000 results. Twitter was also roaring with chatter on the video, much of it positive. It seems Cyrus’ willingness to both mock herself and the GOP appealed to fans, many of whom were divided about her hugely controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year.
“Saturday Night Live’s” Seth Meyers summed up the predominant feeling on Twitter by posting the video and writing, “Miley Cyrus was game and has game. Here she is as Michele Bachmann.”
Other tweets were equally laudatory, with many people commenting on how hilarious it was, and some people asking if the GOP is going to try to find a way to tie Cyrus’ performance to President Obama.
Conservative outlet the Blaze was taken aback, however, posting a warning: “EDITOR’S NOTE: This article contains mature content that may be offensive to some readers. Proceed with caution. — Miley Cyrus performed a provocative rendition of her ‘We Can’t Stop’ single last night.”
The headline of the article the site linked to read, “Consider Carefully if You Should Watch the New (NSFW) Miley Cyrus SNL Sketch Featuring John Boehner and Michele Bachmann Doing Unspeakable Things.”
Speaking of those things, many viewers will have a hard time shaking the image of an extremely gay Boehner character in a tiny white half-top emblazoned with the presidential seal straddling Uncle Sam while Cyrus’ Bachmann stuffs dollar bills in his bearded mouth.
“It’s our party we can do what we want / It’s our party we can say what we want / We can stop what we want / We can defund what we want,” goes the chorus. “If you’re not ready for healthcare can I get a ‘hell no?’ ”
NSFW? Twitter makes it clear that it depends on your politics.

Annie Lennox Takes On Likes Of Miley Cyrus & Rihanna For ‘Highly Styled Pornography’
Annie Lennox has had it with femme pop stars wearing next to nothing and gyrating in “overly sexualized performances.”
The rock icon and former Eurythmicslead singer didn’t name names in herFacebookdiscourse but said she was sure her fans would know who she was talking about, implying that Miley Cyrus and Rihanna were at the top of her list.
Pop star Annie Lennox has attacked the music industry for peddling “highly styled pornography” and accused some stars of misogyny.
The former Eurthymics singer lashed out in a post on her Facebook page where she said young girls were being bombarded with “sexualised imagery” in an attempt by record companies to make money.
“I have to say that I’m disturbed and dismayed by the recent spate of overtly sexualised performances and videos,” Lennox wrote.“You know the ones I’m talking about. It seems obvious that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment.”Lennox said she is all about freedom of expression but warns that how much money you can make should not be the bar on how far to push the envelope.
“As long as there’s booty to make money out of, it will be bought and sold,” she wrote. “It’s depressing to see how these performers are so eager to push this new level of low.
“Their assumption seems to be that misogyny – utilized and displayed through oneself is totally fine, as long as you are the one creating it. As if it’s all justified by how many millions of dollars and U tube hits you get from behaving like pimp and prostitute at the same time. It’s a glorified and monetized form of self harm.”
