As Week 2 of the government shutdown continues, new websites have begun popping up to give furloughed workers and frustrated Americans alike an outlet to express their anger. Especially after they’ve knocked back a couple. Drunkdialcongress.org connects the disgruntled to the House of Representatives. You can enter your phone number into the website and an inebriated voice from a 1-800 number will call you back and ask, “Is this government shutdown making you want to drink?” before transferring to Capitol Hill so that you can “tell them what’s on your mind and tell them to get back to work.”
