Dave Mustaine, Megadeth Frontman, Endorses Rick Santorum For President
February 14th, 2012
Speaking of news, you were a correspondent for MTV during the 1992 presidential election. What's your take on US politics in 2012?
"I'm just hoping that whatever is in the White House next year is a Republican. I can't bear to watch what's happened to our great country. Everybody's got their head in the sand. Everybody in the industry is like, 'Oh, Obama's doing such a great job...' I don't think so. Not from what I see.
"Looking at the Republican candidates, I've got to tell you, I was floored the other day to see that Mitt Romney's five boys have a $100 million trust fund. Where does a guy make that much money? So there's some questions there. And watching Newt Gingrich, I was pretty excited for a while, but now he's just gone back to being that person that everybody said he was – that angry little man. I still like him, but I don't think I'd vote for him.
"Ron Paul… you know, I heard somebody say he was like insecticide – 98 percent of it's inert gases, but it's the two percent that's left that will kill you. What that means is that he'll make total sense for a while, and then he'll say something so way out that it negates everything else. I like the guy because he knows how to excite the youth of America and fill them in on some things. But when he says that we're like the Taliban… I'm sorry, Congressman Paul, but I'm nothing like the Taliban.
"Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable. Also, just watching how he hasn't gotten into doing these horrible, horrible attack ads like Mitt Romney's done against Newt Gingrich, and then the volume at which Newt has gone back at Romney… You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I'm hoping that if it does come down to it, we'll see a Republican in the White House... and that it's Rick Santorum."
A spokesman for Rick Santorum's presidential campaign, which came to life with three wins last week, has not responded to a request for comment.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine's not ready to cast his vote just yet
"Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate," the rocker said in a release after earlier reports had him backing Republican Rick Santorum on Wednesday. "What I did say was that I hope to see a Republican in the White House. I've seen good qualities in all the candidates but by no means have made my choice yet. I respect the fact that Santorum took time off from his campaign to be with his sick daughter, but I never used the word 'endorse.'"
also, who gives a fuck what this idioturd thinks. shut the fuck up and play. lol
I met Dave Mustaine after a Megadeth concert when I was 13. He was standing in the doorway of the tour bus giving out autographs to fans. I asked him to sign my Peace Sells shirt and said something gay like "you rock!"
All he did was scowl, sign it real quick, and make a hand motion that I move so the next person could get his autograph.
I've hated him ever since. He was a prick to everyone.
Now Matthew Barlow from Iced Earth, he's a nice guy. I got his autograph too after that same show and he was happy to meet me. Iced Earth ruled when I was 13.
DAVE MUSTAINE MADE AN ALBUM CALLED ENDGAME. IT WAS MADE IN HONOR OF ALEX JONES. HIS MOST RECENT ALBUM, 13, IS AGAINST THE NEW WORLD ORDER! NO WAY WOULD DAVE CALL RON PAUL "INSECTICIDE." DAVE HAS BEEN ON ALEX'S SHOW MORE THAN ONCE AND HE COULD NOT POSSIBLY STILL BE IGNORANT OF RICK SANTORUM'S LINKS TO THE POWER ELITE AND CHILD-MOLESTERS.
WHAT KIND OF PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS IS DAVE MUSTAINE TAKING, BECAUSE THIS SHIT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL!
