Politico reports back what Michele Bachmann said at the beginning of a rally today:

"Before we get started, let's all say 'Happy Birthday' to Elvis Presley today," Bachmann said. "You can't do better than Elvis Presley."

Elvis Presley died 34 years ago today.

Serious question: Does Bachmann have handlers? Most high-profile candidates hire people who make sure their candidates don't make trivial little fuckups like this. Bachmann can't seem to get even the smallest details right. She's in the big leagues now, so she ought to start acting like it.
