When you lead a life as exciting as mine, the arrival of spring break is a door opening to another adventure.

I decided not to head for Fort Lauderdale. My sole destination after I left school following a morning of parent-teacher conferences was the couch in my apartment for a blissful appointment with nap time.

Curse you, Mitt Romney!

I finally had to give up on my hopes of catching some restful slumber thanks to four, count them four, robo-calls from supporters of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, urging me to get to the caucuses and support him in his effort to stay the momentum of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

I had no plans of attending the Republican caucuses. I haven't been to a presidential caucus since 1984 when I attended the Barton County Democratic Caucus in my role as county campaign manager for Gary Hart.

But when you wake me up from my nap, you are messing with a force of nature. Four robo-calls in support of one robo-candidate.

Rick Santorum is looking better all the time.

As I thought about whether I should attend the Jasper County Republican Caucus, I thought about all of the beliefs that Rick Santorum and I have in common.

First, there's his stance on contraception. No wait a minute, I don't agree with him on that.

Or how about his progressive views on education? (What, you say he doesn't have any progressive views on education?)

Or how about his support of women's issues (What's that you say? Santorum believes a woman's place is in the oven?)

Perhaps Rick Santorum and I don't agree on that many issues but there is one Santorum platform I can stand firmly behind- HE DOESN'T WAKE ME UP WHEN I AM TAKING A NAP!

So I am heading to the Republican caucus Saturday and caucusing for the great hope of a sleep-impaired nation- Rick Santorum.

Or maybe I'll just take a nap.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
