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.

There is no question Rupar has a Bachmann fetish. Own it, Aaron! There's nothing wrong with cougar lust! #TweetsAreYours

Miley was such a cute girl...now she looks like one of the young lesbians on 'The Real 'L' Word'.  I mean she has such a beautiful petite body; but....one thing I know from life experience is when you're repressed during your teen years you become 13 at 21 and start rebelling.  I think Miley will be just fine, but a lot of people look at her like she's some crazy person.  She didn't GET to be 15 and do crazy things, so she's doing it now.  This too will pass.  With Bachmann, well, she graduated high school 40 years ago and she definitely had no part in the fun-loving, free spirited 1970's culture; she is purely a 1980's stick-in-her-ass, ruin-everyone-else's-fun twat.

Most of these posters are missing the humor gene. (or didn't read the article)

Have you ever heard of sarcasm? At least Bachmann has a sense of humor and is willing to poke fun at herself. Miley is a pig is a pig is a pig!

Without doubt the citizens who mistook Miley for Michele are from the 6th District. They also seem to be confused every 4 years.

Bachmann is about 8 billion times hotter than Miley Cyrus. I don't care what her politics are, Michelle Bachmann is an A-1 blue ribbon fox. Miley will never come close.

Except that Miley is about 50 years younger! (A slight exaggeration . . . )

I have to admit, Bachmann is pretty hot, in a bitchy, lunatic, bat shit crazy sort of way.

If you're the kind of person who would vote for Bachmann -- OR, if you're the kind of person who would actually call your congressman and expect answers -- I guess you're probably the kind of person who may confuse Miley and Michele.

She thought they said "working," not "twerking," and she has no intention of taking it up.

I wonder if her husband gets a good awkward laugh out of it when SNL portrays him.

That's a funny story, really, she should be lending her talents to some prime time tv shows!

@צ'רלי קונו Miley and Bachmann do have one similarity - they will do or say anything to keep themselves relevant.

Agreed that it is bullshit that she believes that someone would mistake her for a 20 yr old.
