Michele Bachmann stopped in Spartanburg, South Carolina, for a campaign rally today. A fan of the King, Bachmann has said in the past that she has some Elvis songs on her iPod. At the start of her rally, she asked the crowd to wish him a happy birthday, notes CNN. There was just one problem: Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935. Today's the day that he joined the heavenly choir 34 years ago. (Click to read about Bachmann's miscue on John Wayne vs. John Wayne Gacy.)
