Megadeth Lead Singer Dave Mustaine Endorses Rick Santorum For President

By 02.15.12

Because 80s death-metal thrash-metal bands are pretty much synonymous with evangelical Christian presidential candidates who want to limit sex to attempts to conceive and not allow women to fight for our country, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine today announced that he’s supporting Rick Santorum candidacy for President of the United States.

Reports Politico:

“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,” Mustaine recently told MusicRadar.com. “… 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.”

Weighing in on the rest of the field, Mustaine called Newt Gingrich an “angry little man” and said Ron Paul will “make total sense for a while, and then he’ll say something so way out that it negates everything else.”

As for Mitt Romney, the rocker said, “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.”

Still, Mustaine would pick any of the GOP candidates over President Barack Obama.

“I’m just hoping that whatever is in the White House next year is a Republican,” he said. “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.

Hmmm, maybe this is why Lars Ulrich kicked him out of Metallica?

And interestingly, Mustaine covered the Democratic convention for MTV News in 1992…

I now look forward to Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna coming out in support of Lyndon Larouche.
