Michele Bachmann in Spartanburg, South Carolina this morning giving the King birthday wishes. The only problem, as every Elvis fan knows who mourns his loss, is that Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977.

"Let's all say Happy Birthday to Elvis Presley!" Said Bachmann. "We thought we'd celebrate his birthday as we get started celebrating Take Our Country Back Tour!"

Oops.

Another silly gaffe from a campaign prone to them.
