Rand Paul Celebrates Festivus By Airing His Grievances On Twitter

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) aired his grievances with Congress, the Federal Reserve and the state of bipartisanship in the Senate in a string of Festivus-inspired tweets on Monday.

Festivus is a secular holiday that gained popularity on the TV show Seinfeld. Among its traditions: accusing others of being a disappointment and feats of strength, such as wrestling.

Paul got into the spirit by first complaining about the budget bill that Congress recently passed.

He also took issue with the so-called "nuclear option" that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) used to change the Senate rules regarding the filibuster for presidential appointments.

Paul noted that Dec. 23 is not just Festivus, but also the 100th anniversary of the Federal Reserve.

Perhaps fishing for a response, Paul went after Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

To which Booker responded:

D.C. parking regulations were a target, too.
