Awwwwwwwww.....that's insipid

Country star Martina McBride sang a song consoling Rick Santorum's eight-year old daughter over her tears when Daddy lost big-time in his bid for re-election.

“I’d been looking for a song that talks about these times we live in, and addresses issues that really bother me. I wanted lyrics that express how I truly feel, and these are perfect.”

Yes, poor little girl Santorum's daddy lost an election -- and her tears caused this song:

In these times in which we live
Where the worst of what we live
Is laid out for all the world on the front page
And the sound of someone’s heartbreak
Is a sound bite at the news break
With a close shot of the tears rollin’ down their face
Blessed be the child who turns a loving eye
And stops to pray
For these times in which we live

Telling that Martina McBride apparently moved by the tears of a defeated politician's daughter ... a man who happily enabled scenes like the one befalling this young girl, probably a tad younger:

A child covered in her parent's blood cries after they were killed in their car in Tal Afar, Iraq for not stopping at a checkpoint.

Whose prayers was she not in Martina?
