Santorum or Megadeth?

Who said it -- Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum or the lead singer of the heavy-metal band Megadeth? (courtesy of Mother Jones)

1. "Decadence and debauchery killed your memories. You're a liar."
2. "Shutter faith...push it out...oppress people...weaken them...the guillotine."
3. "The greatest lie (the Devil) ever told was convincing people he doesn't exist...(The Devil) is very beautiful; he's an Angel. Why would he look like some monster. He's capable of looking just like you. He could be in this room right now. We wouldn't know it."
4. "If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age? There is no one else to go after other than the United States and that has been the case now for almost two hundred years..."
5. When asked about Occupy Wall Street, he took the question as a cue to slam Barack Obama as "the most divisive president we've ever had." He went on to say that "I've never, in my 50 years of being alive, listened to an American president try and turn one class of people against another class of people."
6. "If you attack the king you had better kill the king otherwise you will be in big trouble!"
7. Was caught on tape saying that "the last thing I need is a bunch of homos picketing us," after being asked to comment on the homosexuality of a rival.
8. "We were put on this Earth as creatures of God to have dominion over the Earth."
9. "As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else."
10."I think there┐s enough evidence that shows there is some effort being made toward controlling religion┐It┐s pretty clear that they┐re taking prayer out of school. It┐s been happening for a very long time. The very first schoolbook that was written had God all over it...They┐re taking God out of the schools to dumb (the American people) down."

Answers later!

10 is by megadeth. the guy apparently has gotten religion and is saying some really strange stuff.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/02/15/megadeth-frontman-dave-mustaine-endorses-rick-santorum.html

He┐s even down with Rick Perry┐s notion that President Obama is waging a ┐war on religion,┐ a notion that has now been adopted and even intensified by the remaining candidates. ┐It's pretty clear that they're taking prayer out of school. It's been happening for a very long time. The very first schoolbook that was written had God all over it. I collect books and I have some really, really old schoolbooks, and God is mentioned on every single page. They're taking God out of the schools to dumb us down.┐


found the same info on many sites - none of which i was familiar with.

MoJo also has the equally enjoyable "Newt or Schrute" quiz, asking you to identify if statements were made by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich or "The Office" character Dwight Schrute.
