Dear C-Span:

Your callers are almost universally ill-informed kooks. This leads me to wonder why you have call-in shows and, if your mission is to inform the public about its government's business, whether you are really helping?

Sincerely,
Fear and Loathing in Georgetown

This is only slightly related to your post, but once I was watching that show when a woman called in with a long, passionate, somewhat rambling tirade about U.S. troops' inadequate body armor. In the middle of it, Brian Lamb suddenly got an odd look on his face.

"Is this Cher?" he asked.

The caller was silent for a few moments. "Yes," she finally admitted. "This is Cher."
