Unabated by Seinfeld writer Dan O’Keefe’s Politico-cited criticism of Rand Paul’s 2013 Festivus nod on Twitter, the Kentucky Senator opted to make it a tradition, as he marked December 23 of 2014 with another round of the Airing of the Grievances. For those not in the loop, Festivus is a secular faux holiday, which first appeared in popular culture on the TV show Seinfeld, that contrasts the commercialized furor of the holiday season. The December 23 celebration, which originated as an O’Keefe family tradition and is known by the slogan “Festivus for the rest of us,” involves activities like the displaying of the Festivus pole, a Festivus dinner, the Airing of the Grievances, Feats of Strength, and the performance of Festivus miracles.

According to NBC News, Rand Paul marked 2014’s Festivus by going public once again on Twitter with his yearly, comically-intended list of people, places, and things that disappointed him. Publicizing one’s gripes about the events of the previous year, the “Airing of the Grievances,” is a post-dinner Festivus tradition. His tweets took soft jabs at fellow senators Marco Rubio, Cory Booker, Harry Reid, and Mitch McConnell. The annual complaints also contained some extraordinary examples of government waste and blasted those who would mock his hair. Behold a sampling of his light-hearted Festivus tweets below.

Senator Paul also posted a tweet with a photo of a long-sleeved black shirt embroidered with “Rand Paul 2016” on the chest, an apparent hint at his rumored 2016 presidential bid. Another tweet threatened additional grievances, still to come, against the media and the Federal Reserve.
