Michele Bachmann and John Boehner were partying together this Saturday, making fun of the shutdown they brought about.

Okay, it was Miley Cyrus and Taran Killam on SNL.

If you haven’t seen this video, you’re missing out. Cyrus, who was the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live this past weekend, parodied her hit song “We Can’t Stop” by putting a political twist on it. Dressed as Michele Bachmann, she is joined by Killam who is dressed as a very scantily clad John Boehner. Wearing a white leotard much like what Miley Cyrus wears in the actual video, Killam gets Boehner’s facial expressions exactly right, even as he celebrates shutting down the government. Cyrus twerks in a sexy suit and both party while ‘Pres. Obama’ watches them in disbelief through a window. Little things, like spelling “out of twerk” in the alphabet soup, and members of Congress coming out of the bushes with a park ranger and an astronaut close behind, adjusting their clothing, that really make the video a great, lighthearted view of the government shutdown, giving us a much needed laugh as only SNL knows how.

For those who were curious as to the full lyrics of the parody, here they are:

It’s our party, we can do what we want
It’s our party,we can say what we want
It’s our party, we can stop what we want
We can vote how we want
Defund what we want

Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere
Bills in the house like we don’t care
‘cause we came to shut it all down now
No government around now
If you’re not ready for health care
Can I get a ‘hell, no?’
‘Cause we’re gonna keep it out shut down
D.C. is a closed town all around

So la da di da di
Republican Party
Repping GOP
Doing whatever we want
This is our house, this is our rules

And we did stop (the government)
Yeah, we did stop (shut that down)
Can’t you see it’s we who on the right?
Can’t you see it’s we who ‘bout that life?

To my government workers on a furlough
Even though you’re already paid low (sorry)
Remember only God can judge us
Forget the haters, ‘cause somebody elected us
And everyone in line for early childcare
Anyone who planned to see a grizzly bear
We are so shut down here
Getting so shut down

So la da di da di…

Sorry IRS; Too bad astronauts…
