Someone with strong opinions (especially political) but lacks the eloquence to express them. He makes his stance known only by agreeing with an eloquent speaker with the same opinions.
Teacher: Class, what do you think?
Robert: The problem is with the tax
accountant lobbyists who demand ever more complicated tax codes to give themselves job security and tax payers headaches.
Herbert: Yeah! What he said.
Teacher: Herbert, you are such a dittohead!
While the term may have originated by Limbaugh encouraging people who enjoyed the show to just say "ditto", the word has now evolved to mean a blind follower of Rush's twisted logic.
A true dittohead would follow Rush Limbaugh blindly into the depths of hell if they thought he would allow them to touch one of his Oxycontin stained fingertips.
Bob: Rush Limbaugh is such a visionary. I would give my left testicle to share my Oxycontin prescription with him.
Steve: Why man, Rush Limbaugh is worth $500 million that the government knows of. He can afford to buy a child from South America and pay his way through medical school just so poor little Emanuel Limbaugh will be able to someday write Rush whatever prescription suits him that day.
Bob: Wow Steve, you are an idiot, Rush is just like you and me!!! He knows what's best for the people!!! HOW DARE YOU INSULT MY GOD!!!!
Steve: Sorry man. (Walks away)
(Bob remains infuriated for days not realizing that he's a typical "dittohead")
Someone who seeks to make sense of American politics, but delegates the task to a right-wing radio pundit, resulting in a chasm between what is believed to be true and objective reality.
- "Joe says that if the icecaps melt, the water level will actually decrease, because ice takes up more space than liquid water."
- "Doesn't he know most of the world's ice is on land, and not floating in the ocean?"
- "What can you do? He's a dittohead."
1. A person addicted to prescription painkillers
2. a fan of the Rush Limbaugh show
This fucking country's lost its grip
Subconscious hold begins to slip
The scales of justice tend to tip
The legal system has no spine
It's corroding from inside
Slap your hand you'll do no time
Reality on vacation
All across a blinded nation
Mentality under sedation
Anyone can be set free
On a technicality
Explain the law again to me
Here in 1994
Things are different than before
Violence is what we adore
Invitation to the game
Guns and blades and media fame
Every day more of the same
Murder, mayhem, anarchy
Now are all done legally
Mastermind your killing spree
Unafraid of punishment
With a passive government
There's nothing for you to regret
Nothing to regret
No enforcing ministry
Gaping with judicial flaws
Watching a fading nation crawl
Clashing with the public's frame
I'm the one that's place in fame
Legislature sets the stage
Social slaves caught in my rage
There's nothing you can do to me
The world around you drifting to a
Continental tomb you see
Violence is my passion
I will never be contained
Living with aggression
And its everlasting reign
The homoerotic process of swallowing and later regurgitating Limbaugh's rants on internet boards.
JK: "Barack the Magic Negro is blah blah blah insert neocon rant here ____________"
Informedvoter: "Wow, JK. You give great dittohead. Do yourself a favor. If you ever come up for air, try to wipe the sticky Limbaugh Love off your DSL's."
A person whose opinions are based entirely off of their favorite pundit's opinions. Contrary to popular belief this extends to both sides of the party line. Who would have that that Republicans AND Democrats could have kneejerk reactions?
"Bush is not my president"
"Everything is Clinton's fault"
Both are representative of dittohead thought.
A listener to the Rush Limbaugh Show that doesn't necessarily agree with everything Rush says, but appreciates and enjoys the show nonetheless.
Even though I disagree with some of the Undeniable Truths of Life, I'm still a dittohead.
