We thought that Dec. 23 (Festivus, that is) was the proper time for the airing of grievances, as Sen. Rand Paul demonstrated with his epic anti-D.C. Twitter rant this Monday.

#americanproblemsnight we have problems? What? All our stuff is made in China and we live good damn life with our broke ass gov
