Website helps people ‘drunk dial’ Congress

For those who might be too sloshed to come up with anything to say, the site provides shutdown-related talking points such as, “Why don’t you make yourself useful and at least mow the lawn?” and “You jerks are costing the country $12 million bucks per hour!”

Cocktail recipes for adult beverages such as “The Bad Representative” (which includes whisky, cherry brandy, vermouth and lemon) and “The Sleepy Senator” are also featured.

While the website says it randomly selects lawmakers to dial, Revolution Messaging founder Scott Goodstein said in a Thursday news release, “House Republicans in particular deserve to be screamed at.”

The company said upon the launch of the free service, “We’re hoping this site will help furloughed workers keep their spirits up and we want them to know that many of us appreciate our government employee friends and all the services they provide.”
