Want to drunk-dial Congress?
Revolution Messaging — a mobile ad firm — has built a Web tool that connects users with a randomly selected congressional office.
At drunkdialcongress.org, users put in their own phone number. The site then calls them from an 1-800 number and connects them to a Capitol Hill office.
The site’s tagline: “Whether you are a furloughed worker, being forced to work for free, or just fed up at Capitol Hill: call and yell at a random member of Congress.”
The firm is also offering a deal to any other organization: free access to their ZIP code-based calling technology during the shutdown.
The website also includes cocktail recipes and talking points.
The drunk-dial site launches as hundreds of thousands of federal employees remain on unpaid level — while hundreds of D.C.-area bars and restaurants are offering drink specials.
