Bachmann wishes Elvis happy birthday on death date 
SPARTANBURG, South Carolina (AP) Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann got her Elvis Presley dates all shook up during a campaign stop Tuesday in South Carolina.
The congresswoman from Minnesota played the Elvis tune "Promised Land" at a local restaurant and told the crowd of 300 that she wanted to say happy birthday to the king of rock 'n' roll.
"Before we get started, let's all say happy birthday to Elvis Presley today!" Bachmann said.
But Aug. 16 is the anniversary of Elvis' death, in 1977, and someone in the crowd shouted back, "He died today!"
Bachmann didn't respond and launched into her speech... 
(AHD EDIT: Like she really gives a sh!t...)
...Bachmann has stumbled over cultural references before. In June, she kicked off her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, calling it the home of American actor John Wayne. The town was actually home for a time to serial killer John Wayne Gacy...   (AHD: :lookingup:)

It's also the day I  was officially discharged from the Navy. I remember driving from Seattle across Idaho and  Wyoming listening to all  the late night radio chatter about it .

Also Madonna's Birthday.
According to legend, she took it as a sign & headed off to New York.
