Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) speaks to reporters during the 14th day of the partial government shut down in Washington on October 14, 2013. Credit: Reuters Dec. 23 is Festivus, and though Sen. Rand Paul is a devout Christian, he is getting into the holiday spirit with the "Airing of Grievances" on his Twitter feed. Paul warned his followers Sunday night that he would be celebrating the holiday.
In honor of Festivus, tomorrow I will be airing my grievances, mostly against Washington. Check back here in the morning.
He followed the tweet with a quote from "Seinfeld's" Frank Costanza: "I've got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're going to hear about it!"
Paul aired grievances against the bipartisan budget deal, the Senate, the Federal Reserve, the Senate cafeteria, his staffers who don't like his turtlenecks, Obamacare, the NSA and even his dad, Ron Paul, for auctioning off his vintage car instead of giving it to him.
The recent "bipartisan deal" will add 7 trillion more debt. And was hailed as an example of Washington "getting something done."
Paul mixed it up with some serious tweets bemoaning a lack of cooperation from within the Senate along with lighthearted rib against Cory Booker for not retweeting him enough and the Senate cafeteria for not serving burgoo. All in all, Paul posted dozens of grievances, both "minor" and major.
No word on if Paul put up a Festivus pole in his office today.
