Some insults just don’t really come across as true insults -this short music video parody from SNL portrays Speaker of the House John Boehner as a party boy and Michele Bachmann as a variation of Miley Cyrus. The song used is a parody version of Miley Cyrus’ ”It’s Our Party.”
It is about the government shut down and portrays Bachmann and Boehner as being irresponsible party happy people. In the background you see a terrified Obama looking in from the outside of the house. The thing is, the video is so ridiculous it’s hard to take it seriously as a true insult. And the song referenced from Cyrus has a multitude of deeper sadder meanings about the party life. So how can you take it seriously? And would you? You can’t.
Additionally, the last time this writer saw a major politician portrayed as a party boy on SNL – it was George W. Bush in 2004 – and he won the presidential race that year.
