    Well this is some fun! It's not his choice of Santorum that has me grinning ear to ear as much as just having another rocker join in with conservatives. Yay!

    Dave Mustaine, leader of the heavy metal band Megadeth, is ready to rock out for Rick Santorum.

    "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."

    Brother will kill brother
    Spilling blood across the land
    Killing for religion
    Something I don't understand

    Fools like me,who cross the sea
    And come to foreign lands
    Ask the sheep,for their beliefs
    Do you kill on god's command?

    Holy Wars... Lyrics - Megadeth

    There's nothing surprising or shocking about this. Dave Mustaine is a born-again evangelical ordained minister. He's been very socially conservative for years.

    According to stories, he made the newest drummer of Megadeth become ordained too before he'd let him join the band.

    Too bad Metallica gave Dave the boot... he is far better than Kirk. Oh well.
