Miley Cyrus's impression of Michele Bachmann on 'SNL' fooled some voters.

Twerking expert Miley Cyrus donned a brunette wig and pretended to be Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., on the most recent "Saturday Night Live," doing a political parody of her "We Can't Stop" music video.

The skit, "We Did Stop (The Government)" is an almost perfect recreation of Cyrus' video, though this time featured a bronzed and scantily-clad "John Boehner," and Cyrus as a tawdry Bachmann and imagery of elephants and Ronald Reagan.

 

Bachmann, talking to the Tea Party News Network Tuesday, said the skit was all in good fun, but it confused some constituents.

"What was kind of funny is 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," Bachmann said. "And I will tell you as a 57-year-old woman, it has been a long time since I've been confused for a 20-year old."

Cyrus' Bachmann character was "out of twerk" in the video, something that the two of them might agreed on. "I've never done twerking in my life and I don't intend to take it up," Bachmann said.
