Bachmann flubs Elvis Presley's birthday
Advertisements [?]

GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann mistakenly wished Elvis Presley a "happy birthday" today during a campaign event in South Carolina.

Presley -- "The King" to music fans everywhere -- died 34 years ago on this date.

According to CNN's Political Ticker, the Minnesota congresswoman asked everyone at her rally in Spartanburg to wish a "happy birthday" to Presley after she took the stage. She had played his song Promised Land at the event.

Bachmann is a Presley fan, having said during a debate in June in New Hampshire that she keeps Elvis' Christmas music on her iPod.

Presley was born Jan. 8, 1935.
