Dave Mustaine says he didn’t ‘endorse’ a candidate (but still is voting Republican)

Thumbs down Internet! (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Megadeth

We didn’t personally use the word “endorse” anywhere in our post earlier today, and neither did Dave Mustaine in the interview where he said, “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.” But this thing has been around the internet and back again today, and some peeps may have used the word “endorse”, which maybe makes it sound too official and stuff, and so the Megadeth frontman is not happy about that and he issued the following statement:

“Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate. 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 you have it.

In unrelated news, Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper just announced a tour!
