Fed up with the government shutdown but need a little liquid courage before you can get those feelings off your chest?

If you're the kind of person who tends to say what's on your mind after a couple drinks, then there's a new website that will help you do just that to members of congress.

From a National Journal report, "Drunk Dial Congress" is a website that allows users to enter their phone numbers and be connected via a phone call to a random member of congress. Drinking beforehand is not required, but recommended.

The service's website also lists "talking points," a series of links to news stories about the government shutdown. There are also drink recipes for cocktails like "The Sleepy Senator," "The Southern Congressman," and "The Fancy Statesman."
