Countdown To Extinction: Santorum Endorsed By Dave Mustaine Of Megadeth

The stage is set for a Santorum presidency now that Megadeth frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine has bestowed his endorsement upon Rick Santorum. With the bigot in chief‘s place firmly established, will we all pay the price?

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.

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.

It’s a headcrusher of a thought
And I have the right to go insane
Because I’m sweating bullets
Could this be the endgame?

I sure hope not. This can’t possibly be how the story ends.

No word yet on the official Santorum/Megadeth campaign theme song but early unconfirmed reports point to Ashes In Your Mouth.

Update – 2012-02-18 at 3:27pm:

The countdown has been halted as Mustaine has clarified his earlier comments telling Billboard he has not endorsed any candidate for president.

From Billboard – Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Not Ready to ‘Endorse’ Santorum:

“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’. “

    Anyone familiar with Mustaine’s lyrics from the albums that made him famous should react to this with a “wait, what?!?” But anyone aware that he’s recently become a born again Christian, won’t be surprised that, along with his religious views, he’s also done a complete 180 on his political views too. You can tell the conversion is complete, because he isn’t commenting on policies or giving logical reasons why each Republican candidate would be a good at running the country – it’s all about who seems more presidential, and which personality is better, etc.

    I don’t know though. For such an important decision I’m going to withhold making my final choice until hearing who Lars Ulrich or Sammy Hagar endorse.

  • Yeah, I’m waiting for the Lars delegation to make their final endorsement as well.

    I just noticed that this is filed in “Humor.” I assume this is because it describes someone actually endorsing Santorum…? 😉

  • There is nothing about this that is serious…unless Santorum actually wins. 🙂 I don’t really care who Mustaine endorses of course but I do find it humorous that the frontman of Megadeth is endorsing Mr. Sweater Vest. Add that to the plays on Megadeth song titles and lyrics in my post and it no longer felt like it belonged in the Politics category, especially since this entire site revolves around politics anyway.
