Get Loaded and Call Your Congressman
That's the "loaded" concept behind new site DrunkDialCongress which suggests you have a few stiff drinks--they even provide the recipes--and then call your congressional rep and complain about the shutdown.

They also provide talking points, such as "Grandma Can't Get Her Cancer Treatment," "You had one job to do and you didn't do it" and "I can't watch the panda." And you can allegedly put in your zip code and dial directly, though it didn't work for me.
