“We Can’t Stop” Parody Mocks Government

Miley Cyrus was both the host and the musical guest for “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday, but the loudest applause of the night came when the singer parodied one of her own songs, “We Can’t Stop,” by giving it a political twist.

Cyrus played Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and Taran Killam played House Speaker John Boehner in a risque parody of Cyrus’ song, “We Can’t Stop,” turning the lyrics into “We Did Stop (The Government).” Cyrus and Killam suggestively danced and vamped to the new lyrics, which presented a raunchy Republican celebration of the government shutdown.

“Cause we came to shut it all down now, no government around now, if you’re not ready for healthcare, can I get a ‘hell no,'” Cyrus sang while dressed as Bachmann, spanking Uncle Sam, licking Killam as Boehner, and holding and licking an Abraham Lincoln doll. “Government workers on a furlough, even though you’re already paid low … everyone in line for early child care, anyone who planned to see a grizzly bear, we are so shut down yeah.”
