Birther Metal Dude Dave Mustaine: Rick Santorum Would Be ‘A Really Cool President,’ ‘Like JFK’

Enter BlandmanHahahahahahahahaha, here is Megadeth’s (and Metallica’s) Dave Mustaine, last relevant when your editrix was a sophomore in high school, being really “hip” and “with-it” and “politically informed.” First: Obama is not an American (duh):

“I have a lot of questions about [President Obama], but certainly not where he was born,” Mustaine said. “I know he was born somewhere else than America.”

[…]

“How come [Obama] was invisible until he became, uh, whatever he was in Illinois?” he asked. (Obama was previously a senator.) “They don’t have any record of him.”

Well, Obama was also the president of Harvard Law Review, so some people had heard of him. So, that’s stupid. But far funnier than just yer typical brain-damaged Hessian japery is what comes next in Mustaine’s interview with Canadian radio host George Stroumboulopoulos, and that is the cool hipness of one Mr. Former Senator Rick Santorum:

He looks “like he could be a really cool president,” Mustaine explained, “kind of like a JFK kind of guy.” If “JFK kind of guy” means “extremist, paranoid, spitty, sneery, whiny, pouty, smegma-lipped, and totally itching for a new Inquisition,” then yeah, Rick Santorum is kind of like that.

    I was a Megadeth fan in high school. What strange, exotic cocktail of illicit drugs was I on back then? Let's never do that again, brain.

    • anonymousofficezombie

      Mustaine was a lot more sane back in the days when he was still on his own strange, exotic cocktail of illicit drugs. Then he sobered-up and found Jesus. Big mistake.

      • http://krisbunda.com/blog/index.php Designer_Rants

        No middle ground for that guy. Either so insanely intoxicated that even fellow metalheads can't stand him, or a Santorum supporter.

      • HELisforHEL

        So he replaced one drug with another, makes sense.
        What an idiot (unsurprisingly), also.

    Yep. When I look and listen to Santorum, I think "JFK" As in; Jesus Fucking Krazy..

    • http://krisbunda.com/blog/index.php Designer_Rants

      Have you seen "Some Kind Of Monster"? Excellent, in-depth documentary on Metallica. (interesting even to non-fans, IMO). Dave Mustaine is in it for a little bit, and he's SO WHINY (explaining why he identifies w/ Frothy so much?).

      Despite the earrings, ripped jeans and long hair, he's a conservatard, and very traditional in his values.

    To give Metallica a tiny bit of credit, they did kick Brainedead Dave out.

    Having said that, they all should be skullfucked. By someone else's private parts.

  • SorosBot

    Yeah, the sweatervest-wearing, sex-hating, misogynist dweeb would be a "really cool president". Fuck, even Steve Urkel is cooler than Santorum.

    • redarmyzombie

      See, I like Urkel. If Urkel were here today, as a 20something like myself, I would consider going out with him.

      Santorum's like…a used dildo that's been left out too long and started crusting over. (God damn, I'm petty today aren't I?)

    Anyone told Mr. Mustaine about Santorum's position on porn?

  • larryfinexx

    Either Bevis or Butthead used to wear a Metallica T-shirt. I forgot which one, but interview them both to see who they support.

    • prommie

      Didn't Beavis grow up to marry some politician lady from Alaska?

      • Baconzgood

        I have to say. They never made fun of any of the bands I like videos. So they are kinda cool for that.

        • Chichikovovich

          I always thought B&B tended to have pretty good taste, once you got off the predictable ones (Gwar). And if it weren't for them I'd have never heard of Reverend Horton Heat. So they're 100% OK in my book.

          • Baconzgood

            They said once about Pavement "This band sucks. They should try harder like the Jesus Lizard"

          • horsedreamer_1

            They also said, "The Jesus Lizard sucks, but they kick ass!"

            I still think Beavis offered the most lucid criticism of both Prodigy & Korn, though. & I love Korn.

  • WigFlipper

    I was a party one time and this guy came up to me saying he sees me all the time waiting for the bus and he would always think I look like Dave Mustaine cuz of the mullet I was rocking for some reason at the time and I took it as a pretty sweet compliment but then I heard that Mustaine is a 'bagger, so that's too bad and I probably shouldn't have had a mullet back then either.

    • WigFlipper

      Could that guy have been hitting on me? Santorum wouldn't have approved if he was!

    • GOPCrusher

            Sorosbot has a mullet. It's true, look it up!

          • __kth__

            In fairness, Poison weren't really metal, just glam rock like all the other tepid and banal followers of the great New York Dolls. But "real" metal is indeed really terrible; apart from Slayer (maybe), there isn't a single band that one can admire unironically.

            There was a special on hair metal over the weekend on VH-1 Classic, which basically said if you were a guy who wanted to get laid in the 1980s, you went to hair metal concerts.

            Which backs up my experiences, to be sure.

            In other words, dude, you missed a sure thing.

      We used to called bands like these 'Pussy Rock'; most the folks we encountered who played it were Joan Crawfordesque supreme primadonnas of the first order, only with larger makeup kits and higher heels.
      There's some stuff that's kind of cool, but to my ears so many of the songs appeared to be whiny things created as pentatonic-hammer-on-laced unmelodic guitar solo delivery systems.

      The big hair bands of the 80's are not to be confused with heavy metal.

    I find it interesting that Dave Mustane and Megadeth became completely irrelevent about the time Dave Mustane became a born again – and even more important – cleaned up the haze in his brain enough to show the world he doesn't have one.

    Invisible? I thought he was blackety black black ebony panther blackety black, as I am reminded every morning by conservatives with their oogie-boogie/watermelon photos when I open the twatter machine.

      He was Ralph Ellison invisible, Man.

    Hey guys, remember this? Dave Choosing and Losing for MTV at the DNC in 1992:

    And there you have it, again. Melt enough brain cells and you'll fit right in with the far right crazies.

    Paging Tipper Gore! Paging Tipper Gore! This as evidence that certain types of music causes brain damage. Break out the parental warning stickers.

    Mustaine's most famous lyrics start "This one summer? At band camp?"

  • ElPinche

    Who is Barack Obama? He's your daddy. He's leader of the free world who bit the head off the snake of terrorism. Who is Mustang Whatshisface? Some 80s throw back who's been hanging around Steppenwolf at bowling alley gigs for the last 20 years. Fuck off.

    Get a haircut and a real job, ya fuckin' hippie. You're a disgrace to your party.

    I guess people can't find any record of him because they can't find him on the Googles.

  • CommieLibunatic

    Rick Santorum could be "a really cool president" "like JFK?" What the fucking fuck is he fucking talking about!? My nightmares of cosmic doom are more lucid than that!

  • HelmutNewton

    Just think about how many brain cells Mustaine has killed over the years. I mean, when you get kicked out of *Metallica* for drinking too much, you know you must be a real out-of-control drunk.

    How the hell is it that, almost 2 hours into this thread, the phrase
    WHERE'S THE DETH CERTIFICATE?
    is still available?
    You're really slipping, fellow Wonketeers…

    When you're fired from a young Metallica for being TOO MUCH of a DRUNK, you know you are a world-class drunk. I sure hope this little dust-up buries what little is left of this moron's career. There is always Spinal Tap 2.

    Does Beavis still wear his Metallica t-shirt on the new show???

    Dave Mustaine was never relevant.

  • GOPCrusher

    His career really went in the toilet after he transferred to USC from Arkansas. Never played QB again.

    Rebecca,

    You seem to have certain definite facts about Santorum being smegma lipped. What is the source of this undoubtedly true, but probably private thing? Is it his breath?

  • PinkoTuscadero

    Mustaine has always been a despicable human so this comes as no big shock!!! What a douche.

    “How come [Obama] was invisible until he became, uh, whatever he was in Illinois?” he asked.

    One hint: The answer is the same as "why were you in rehab?"

  • FieryLocks

    Of course Dave Mustaine would think Rick Ass Ooze would be a good president.
    Mustaine is a Born Again Skull Fucked By Christianity type now.

  • meatpuppet2

    About that big hair thing. The 80's called.

  • horsedreamer_1

    This was foreshadowed by the title of Megadeth's '89 (I think) album Peace Sells… But Who's Buying?. So, of course, the lyricist for such a piece of art would support the party of perpetual war.

    Conversely, once Thursday (who released '03's War All the Time) finished adjusting their mascara, they announced their endorsement of the Democratic ticket.
