Michele Bachmann wishes Elvis Presley a Happy Birthday ... for his Death Day
"You can't do better than Elvis Presley and we thought we would celebrate his birthday as we get started celebrating taking our country back to work."
Quick fact check on that one ...
a) It's the anniversary of his death, not his birth -- that falls on Jan. 8
b) The day Elvis died was actually Aug. 16, not Aug. 15.
It seems someone tipped Bachmann off to her onstage gaffe since she later she told reporters that she was happy to be in South Carolina "on the anniversary of Elvis Presley's death."
c) Born in Tupelo, Mississippi before moving to Memphis, Tennessee in his teen years, The King has no meaningful ties to Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Points to the unidentified campaign organizer though who told Reuters, "You celebrate Elvis because he never died." Extra credit if Bachmann makes that her campaign slogan.
