Megadeath Frontman Endorses Santorum

Washington (CBS DC) – Rick Santorum picked up a heavy endorsement by a music legend.

In an interview with musicradar.com, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth discussed politics and the candidate he settled on was Senator Santorum.

“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,” he said.

Mustaine also discussed the other candidates, including Ron Paul, who he had some less-than-flattering words for. “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,” he said.

Mustaine long has had an opinion for politics. In 1992 he was a correspondent for MTV’s “Rock the Vote.” That year it was reported that he voted for Bill Clinton.

In 2004, he said democratic candidate John Kerry “is a mistake” who “will ruin our country.”

CBS DC reached out to the Santorum campaign for comment.

    This just confirms for me that Dave Mustaine is worthless. He still cries about being kicked out of Metallica. Well, Dave, it’s because you suck. You suck as a musician and fail as a person.
