Miley Cyrus appeared as a twerking Rep. Michele Bachmann in a spoof of the singer’s hit song “We Can’t Stop” on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

The 20-year-old performer donned a suit and a brunette wig, and Taran Killam, posing as House Speaker John A Boehner, wore a gold grill, kissed a man’s chest and slaughtered an American flag pinata.

The song, titled “We Did Stop,” poked fun mostly at Republicans for the government shutdown.

“Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere,” the lyrics went. “Bills in the house like we don’t care, ‘cause we came to shut it all down now. No government around now. … To my government workers on the furlough, even though you’re already paid low, remember only God can judge us. Forget the haters, ‘cause somebody elected us. And everyone in line for early child care. … Anyone who planned to see a grizzly bear. … We are all shut down here. Getting so shut down, yeah, yeah.”

The not-so-PG skit cast a harsh light on the GOP, but the Obama administration did not escape some scathing reviews late Saturday.

Noting the wobbly implementation of websites tied to Obamacare, a Weekend Update anchor criticized the White House for being caught flat-footed by a rush of online traffic.

“How could you not be ready?” she said. “That’s like 1-800-FLOWERS getting caught off guard by Valentine’s Day.”
