I can’t believe I missed this story on Politico.com last month! I know I’m a little late with it- but I just can’t pass it up…

I remember with great fondness watching Senator Rick Santorum give his concession speech last November.

I also remember not feeling the least bit sorry for his daughter as she stood on stage next to her father crying.

I was so happy that this corrupt, gay-hating asshat lost that I actually laughed at his little crying daughter and made fun of the fact that she and her doll were dressed the same.

This says something about how much I hate Rick Santorum.

Anyway- it turns out that some people actually felt bad for little Sarah Santorum.

One of those people was Leslie Satcher- a Nashville songwriter who admits to being a ?big Fox News junky? and, I can only assume, a big fan of Santorum and his christofascist agenda.

Satcher was so moved by the image of this little girl crying that she decided to write a song about it. The song was picked up my Martina McBride and will appear on her new album.

According to Satcher, ?The song is about the fact that we are a faith-believing, conservative nation, and that voice gets very little front-page time to me.?

Asked why she picked this song McBride said, “I?d been looking for a song that talks about these times we live in, and addresses issues that really bother me.”

I find it doubtful that Martina McBride is really bothered by the fact that the liberal media does a crappy job of portraying the values of our “faith-believing, conservative nation”. But hey- I guess you do what you gotta do to sell records to country music fans.

Rick Santorum recently found out about the song told his overly-emotional young daughter. ?She started crying again,? Santorum said.
