Support Your Demon Of Choice

Rep. Maxine Waters delivered a fiery speech to delegates at the California Democratic State Convention this past weekend, calling House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor “demons” whom she doesn’t want to see “in our hall, on our screens.”

“I saw pictures of Boehner and Cantor on our screens,” the California Democrat said in remarks posted online. “Don’t ever let me see again in life those Republicans in our hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are demons.”...More at The Blaze

Fox News host Eric Bolling shocked his co-hosts on "Fox and Friends" when he told Rep. Maxine Waters to "step away from the crack pipe" on Thursday.

Bolling quickly said that he was "kidding."

Waters stirred up anger on the right when video surfaced on Wednesday showing her calling House Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor "demons."

On Thursday, Bolling and co-host Steve Doocy took turns bashing Waters for the remarks. But Bolling took things to another level.

"Congresswoman, you saw what happened to Whitney Houston," he said. "Step away from the crack pipe, step away from the Xanax, step away from the Lorazepam because it’s going to get you in trouble.”

The other hosts immediately gasped, and Doocy muttered, "she's not using drugs."

“How else do you explain those comments?” Bolling said. When the show returned from a break, Bolling quickly backtracked. "I just want to say I was kidding about the crack pipe," he said. "Just kidding.”

I’m just hoping that whatever is in the White House next year is a Republican,” Mustaine told “I can’t bear to watch what’s happened to our great country. Everybody’s got their head in the sand. Everybody in the industry is like, ‘Oh, Obama’s doing such a great job…’ I don’t think so. Not from what I see.”
Blasting Republican front-runner Mitt Romney for his five sons’ multimillion-dollar trust fund and Newt Gingrich for being “that angry little man,” he says he settled on 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 told the music site...Read More

The band has also put out an amusing image featuring their mascot, Vic Rattlehead, mimicking a rather recognizable campaign poster:

All I have to say about this is...Those who throw the terms good and evil around with abandon, and who attempt to demonize their enemies piously and directly in order to gain politically and economically are doomed from the start.
One man's demon may be another man's angel, and neither has achieved that status without experiencing both sides of life.

Heavy metal hero Dave Mustaine has credited Christianity for turning his life around and making him realize he was "a weasel." The Megadeth star admits he wasn't a very nice person before he found God

and he's eager to make amends for all his wrongs...More at Starpulse
