WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- With the Seinfeld-inspired holiday Festivus upon us, Sen. Rand Paul has taken to Twitter for his traditional "airing of the grievances."
Paul, an avowed fan of the made-up holiday, has made a yearly tradition out of using his Twitter account to air his grievances in the style of Frank Costanza, father of Seinfeld's George Costanza.
I've got a lot of problems with you people (mostly in DC), and today you're going to hear about it! Stayed tuned for #Festivus grievances— Senator Rand Paul (@SenRandPaul) December 23, 2014
Paul's targets included politics in general and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.
We discussed hemp, med marijuana, crim justice reform. Some of that has now passed, all of it we've worked on together this year #Festivus— Senator Rand Paul (@SenRandPaul) December 23, 2014
Booker responded to Paul's tweet about bipartisanship last year and challenged the Kentucky senator to face off in "feats of strength" on the Senate floor.
Paul's Festivus grievances this year also took aim at members of his own party including Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa.
Paul even poked fun at his own Twitter feud with Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fl.
Tempting to air a grievance @marcorubio again, but we've done that enough for this week. Instead I will say an early Merry Christmas.— Senator Rand Paul (@SenRandPaul) December 23, 2014
"Senator @marcorubio is acting like an isolationist who wants to retreat to our borders and perhaps build a moat. I reject this isolationism," Paul tweeted Dec. 19.
Paul came back to Twitter later in the day to take Festivus jabs at Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., and the Obama administration.
