Michele Bachmann says she's heard from people who confused her for Miley Cyrus
Unless Michele is lying, some people actually saw this, called Bachmann's office, and asked, "Was that Michele on SNL?"
Michele Bachmann is a nice looking woman, sure. But would you ever confuse her for an ass-shaking, tongue-wagging Miley Cyrus?
Doubtful. But Bachmann herself says her office heard from folks who made that mistake while watching SNL's hilarious lampoon of the government shutdown.
In that skit, of course, Miley got all dolled up as the sexiest Bachmann who ever twerked the face of God's green earth. (Watch it here.)
Here's what Bachmann had to say about the skit during a TheTeaParty.net conference call this afternoon:
BACHMANN: I have a good sense of humor and I never take that personally. I've probably been lampooned six or seven times on 'Saturday Night Live,'"... and what was kinda funny was the Monday after Saturday Night Live aired we had a lot of calls in the office, and people thought that actually was me in the skit. And I will tell you as a 57-year-old woman it's been a long time since I've been confused for a 20 year old.
CALL HOST: [laughing] Yeah, I guess you don't do a lot of twerking?
BACHMANN: I've never done twerking in my life and I don't intend to take it up.
Here's the audio (via the Huffington Post):
That's a pity, because there's no doubt video of Michele getting her twerk on would set off at least a partial internet meltdown.
