WASHINGTON, D.C . — After being spoofed again by NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Rep. Michele Bachmann says she’s honored by being the butt of the show’s jokes.

Saturday Night Live and actress Kristin Wiig have made fun of the conservative Congresswoman several times, including her Tea Party Response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address earlier this year.

Bachmann, who founded the House Tea Party Caucus, is currently exploring her options in a possible presidential bid.  Saturday’s skit featured Wiig as Bachmann in a “2010 Undeclared Republican Candidates Debate.”

Wiig, as Bachmann, appears alongside Tina Fey, who resurrects her famous Sarah Palin impersonation in the skit, and garners laughs when addressing the American people, saying, “A crazy woman untethered can be a dangerous thing … America, I challenge you to a staring contest, and it begins now.”

What does Bachmann think of SNL lampooning her? She tells WJON News she’s actually flattered.

“I thought it was hilarious and I’m just glad they used such a wonderful actor to portray me,” Bachmann says.

And Bachmann says, if asked, she would consider making a cameo on the show, much like Sarah Palin did with impersonator Tina Fey.

Bachmann says she plans to announce whether she will run in June.

And here’s a look at Kristin Wiig poking fun at Bachmann.  She does a pretty good impression of the Congresswoman, don’t you think?
