GOP Shutdown gets EPIC SNL Parody

Though the echo chamber of Fox News may think otherwise, to most Americans it’s pretty clear which political party is receiving blame for the current government shutdown. House Republicans, try as they might, cannot escape the mess that they have caused. In fact, the New York Times revealed that the Government shutdown was planned months in advance by Conservative groups… all with the singular goal of defunding Obamacare. They don’t care about the budget. They don’t care how many Americans get laid off or harmed from these actions. The only thing Republicans care about now is damaging the President. As people across the country continue to take notice, this situation will surely worsen the GOP’s chances of retaining the House in 2014.

Which is why this surprise from Saturday Night Live was such a shocker. Controversial songstress Miley Cyrus changes the lyrics to her hit We Can’t Stop, and concocts an epic mockery of the Republican House caucus, portraying Speaker John Boehner as completely out of control. Republicans are caught in a very dangerous game here.

Here’s the video (NSFW), along with full lyrics to the song.

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,

Vote how we want,

Defund what we want.

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,

Vote how we want,

Defund what we want.

Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere,

Bills in the House like we don’t care,

Because 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!”

‘Cause we’re gonna keep it shut down

DC is a closed town, all around.

So La Da Di Da Di, Republican Party,

Reppin’ GOP, Doing whatever we want,

This is our House, this is our rules,

And we did stop (The Government)

And we did stop (shut that DOWN)

Can’t you see it’s we who are the Right,

Can’t you see it’s we who ‘bout that life.

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,

Vote how we want,

Defund what we want.

To my government workers on the furlough,

Eventhough you’re already paid low,

Remember only God can judge us,

Forget the haters,

‘Cause somebody elected us.

Everyone in line for early childcare,

Anyone who planned to see a Grizzly Bear,

We are so shut down here

Getting so shut down, yeah yeah yeah!

So La Da Di Da Di, Republican Party,

Reppin’ GOP, Doing whatever we want,

This is our House, this is our rules,

And we did stop (The Government)

And we did stop (shut that DOWN)

Can’t you see it’s we who are the Right,

Can’t you see it’s we who ‘bout the fight

It’s our Party we can do what we WANT TO,

It’s our House we can vote how we WANT TO,

It’s our Floor we can say what we WANT TO,

It’s our Rule we’ll defund what we want to, yeah!!

Sorry IRS

(We can do what we want, we can say what we want to)

Ooh yeah!!

Too bad astronauts

We can do what we want, we can do what we want to

Shut it DOWN.
