Sen. Rand PaulRandal (Rand) Howard PaulPompeo lacks votes for positive vote on panel CIA declassifies memo on nominee's handling of interrogation tapes Overnight Defense: House to begin work on defense policy bill | Panel to vote Monday on Pompeo | Trump to deliver Naval Academy commencement speech | Trump appeals decision blocking suspected combatant's transfer MORE (R-Ky.) got into the spirit of the parody holiday Festivus on Monday, airing a list of grievances on Twitter that ranged from the national debt to the Senate cafeteria.

Celebrating Festivus on Dec. 23 was made popular by a 1997 episode of the television show “Seinfeld,” and the day traditionally includes an airing of grievances.

Paul began with a quotation from the show.

A staunch libertarian, Paul blamed both parties for not standing up for all rights.

In a reference to Democrats’ recent move to eliminate the filibuster on most nominees, he called instead for more debate in the Senate.

He criticized the recent budget deal, which he voted against, as too much spending.

One of Paul's signature issues has been calling for more transparency from the Federal Reserve and attacking its stimulus programs.

Other grievances were more personal. He bemoaned the fact that he cannot find classic Kentucky soup at the Capitol.

As for the turtlenecks he often wears, he says he does not want to hear fashion criticism.

The perils of D.C. parking were also an issue.

When he complained that Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) does not retweet him enough, Booker responded with a reference to another Festivus tradition, “feats of strength.”

He says more grievances will be aired later.
