Mad About the Government Shutdown? This Site Lets You Drunk Dial a Random Member of Congress

Drunk Dial Congress http://drunkdialcongress.org

The government has been officially shut down for 10 days now. A shutdown that President Barack Obama calls "completely unnecessary." A shutdown that won't end until Congress stops bitching at each other and starts working together. 

Does that make you mad? It should!

Thankfully, DrunkDialCongress.org has arisen from the ashes of the federal budget, to be the outlet that you both want and need. "Whether you are a furloughed worker, being forced to work for free, or just fed up at Capitol Hill," it explains. "Call and yell at a random member of congress."

But first, get crunk. The site offers festive recipes like "The Southern Congressman" (whiskey), "The Fancy Statesmen" (whiskey), "The Bad Representative" (whiskey) or "The Sleepy Senator" (absinthe).

It continues, "As Members of Congress quickly returned from their final symbolic, non-effective and otherwise useless votes to avert a government shutdown, the heavy drinking began."

"Reports of our representatives getting plastered on the government's dime—the one we have left—have come streaming in from witnesses all over Capitol Hill." (Here, for example.) "Now's your chance to tell your representative what you really think of their actions." 

You just enter your phone number into the site and moments later you will receive a call that will connect you with the office of someone in Congress. If you're at a loss for words, the site offers talking points, starting with "You had one job to do and you failed!"
