(Newser) – Today's shutdown-related media darling looks to be a new website called DrunkDialCongress.org. Its creators want you to vent some rage at a member of Congress over the shutdown, and if you're three sheets to the wind while doing so, all the better. It works like so: You call up the site, plug in your phone number, and get a call-back with a slurred automated message. "Is this government shutdown making you want to drink?" it asks. "When I drink I like to tell people what’s on my mind." After that, your call gets forwarded to the office of a random House member. The left-leaning Revolution Messaging is behind the site, but the calls go to Democrats and Republicans alike, notes MarketWatch.

Isn't that what John Boner does every time he calls his office to check on his messages?

Go on rednecks and leave a few death threats against the president too while you full of p!ss and wind. They won't arrest you if you are drunk. Trust me.
