Rand Paul Celebrates Festivus With List of Grievances, Hints at 2016

Sen. Rand Paul took to Twitter today in his second annual “airing of grievances” in celebration of Seinfeld’s trademark holiday, Festivus.

The Kentucky senator expressed his discontent with wasteful spending, poked fun at Sens. Harry Reid, D-Nev.,  and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., jeered the media and most notably, hinted at a 2016 presidential run.


And so it began…


Paul then pointed to his bipartisan efforts with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, D – N.J.


He then swiveled to his own party, joking about his colleagues’ fashion statements.

All leading up to the potential announcement, generating a firestorm of speculation across the media.


But he quickly moved on to tease Rubio, another 2016 potential who stole headlines this week for contesting Paul’s support of Obama’s Cuban plan.

Paul’s next grievance took aim at the media.

Keeping in line with tradition, Paul’s longest rant was aimed at wasteful spending.



Taking a break from policy, he derided former Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid.

And alluded to Kentucky Democratic Senate contender Alison Lundergan Grimes’ refusal to admit whether she voted for President Obama in 2008 and 2012.

He then took a quick break.

And continued on with a few of the government’s more bizarre regulations.


He went back to the nature of politics.

And finally,  he tweeted about another favorite, the Fourth Amendment.

So marks the end of Paul’s Festivus celebration.
