Megadeth Frontman Backs Rick Santorum – Maybe

Most politicians say they don’t care who supports them and their issues, as long as they vote and donate some cash.  One wonders however if Rick Santorum really wants help from this guy.

Dave Mustaine, leader of the heavy metal band Megadeth, appears to be  endorsing Rick Santorum.  Or is he?

In an interview for MusicRadar.com, Mustaine said this:  “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.”

“… 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?….”

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

To no one’s surprise, Mustaine has issued a “clarification” of his remarks.  He says he was not endorsing Santorum, and, in fact, he won’t be endorsing anyone for President, but:

“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.’”

So there.  Now we know.
