Seems like a commendable thing to do, right? Wrong!
“We played you a little bit of ‘Promised Land’ when we pulled up. 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!”
That was Bachmann’s opening statement in Spartanburg, S.C yesterday, as she addressed the crowd gathered at one of her presidential campaign events. The problem with her celebrating Presley’s birthday yesterday was a little fact that happened to be that August 16th was the day Presley died. Elvis Presley was actually born on January 8th.
But have no fear, this is Michele Bachmann after all. What would really be surprising would be if she even knew what day of the week it was!
Carry on Michele, do you!
