Today we heard the hilarious news that Michele Bachmann, presidential candidate and confirmed space priestess, wished Elvis a happy birthday on his death day. Michele! What were you thinking? Well, one commenter explained.

From Yankton:

John Wayne Gacy notoriously confused Elvis's birthday with the date of his death. So, Bachmann is simply holding true to her pledge on how she'd run her campaign.

Ah, it all makes sense now.
