Megadeth Mainman Now Saying He Didn’t Endorse Santorum

Lars and Dave get cozy
You know, according to the Urban Dictionary, santorum is the butt-fucking residue that’s left on your dong after a roll in the anal hay. Just putting that out there.

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine has issued the following statement following reports of his alleged endorsement of Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum.

“Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate,” Dave says. “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.’”

It’s kind of appropriate that Mustaine would favor a dude like Santorum in the 2012 race for president. As my buddy Jason over at The Gauntlet reminded me, the word “fag” rolled right off Mustaine’s tongue in an interview I had done for Rolling Stone a while back.

When I asked Dave about whether Testament should be in the Big Four, he said this: “I think its totally fair to include them and Exodus and Overkill and a couple of other bands that came from that era. Hirax…that dude had the most perfect afro in metal ever. And who else? And then there was a whole bunch of metal bands that belong there. Well, there are a few that don’t. Some of those fags, they just don’t belong there. I shouldn’t say that, that’s a terrible word. But all those bands with the makeup and all that..that ain’t metal. That’s just not metal. You think about the Big Four and well, there’s only the four of us, and there’s a reason there’s only four.”

Santorum, the former two-term senator from Pennsylvania, was known during his tenure for being one of the more socially-conservative members of Congress; he recently won caucuses in Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri.
