Michele Bachmann Screws Up Basic Historical Fact for Hundredth Time
SHEESH THIS INSANE WOMAN: Here is Michele Bachmann urinating all over the corpse of Elvis Presley by wishing him a happy birthday on the anniversary of his death. Haha, pill-head humor! Or maybe it is one of those creepy Christian things, where death = zombie rebirth. OR WE COULD SPEND ETERNITY trying like tortured humanities graduate students to get to the bottom of this "semi-serious political candidate" woman's complete failure to utter a single true, factual thing ever, at any time in her life, and we would die sad and empty-handed, like Elvis. Secret meaning?
Oh whatever, here is something from some AP reporter who was forced to report this as actual political news:
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.
