Dittohead- (dit-toe'~head(or "head-case") ) A loyal listener of the radio talk show host (see:demagogue, propagandist) Rush Limbaugh known to numbly and blindly agree with everything said host says and thinks, hence "ditto". Well known throughtout the animal kingdom for selective interpretation, narrow minded focus and unquestioned obedience. Found primarily in central flatlands, prairies, southern swamps and faceless suburbs, though certain species (dittoheadus intellectus) inhabit Northeastern cities and can be identified by the ever present notion that their feces doesn't stink.

Once numbering 22 million, scientists(of the radio ratings variety) say there are now fewer than 16 million left in the U.S.

FYI: As officially stated, "Dittos" is just an abbreviated way of stating that one likes the program. A "Dittohead" would be someone who likes the program- NOT one that agrees with all he says. The audience is not some monolithic bloc. - Would it not also be demogoguery, as well as monumentally hubristic, to claim that one end of the political spectrum, and certain areas of the country, hold exclusive rights to independent thought? -- I disgree as often, if not more, than I agree with him, but I like the show for being thought provoking and providing much good info and insight that one would not get from watching the major news networks. To that end; The show IS equal time.

I am a proud Dittohead!!! Even more so since Rush got his hearing back-- I just couldn't stand his new voice when he was deaf. And NKP S2 is right-- a Dittohead doesn't necessarily agree with Rush all the time (I don't), but it is a loyal listener. I even have a coffee mug to prove it!

Contrary to leftist beliefs, Rush Limbaugh is still the most listened-to man in America, heard coast-to-coast in hundreds of cities. Conservatives have traditionally controlled talk radio and Rush is no exception.

N400QX: See, Howard Stern fans don't feel the need to give themselves a corny name, nor does he feel the need to name them. Besides, Stern is an entertainer. Limbaugh is a nutcase who leads blind people who can't think for themselves. Dittohead. Cluelesshead. They could be interchanging.

Signed, one Republican who see's through Limbaugh's act.

Ok, I wasn't really going for Howard Stern, but I just had to throw a lefty radio host's name out there.

"Dildohead" is the name of the listeners to the Tom Lykis (sp?) Show.

And you don't have to be so pissy. Rush is cool (yes, sometimes a bit stuck-up, but who cares?). Not a nutcase, either.

N400QX. I'm not being pissy, but as so posted my my homeboy from the left We're Nuts, Limbuagh believes what he believes right or wrong, and expects the world to go along with that.

Howard Stern is not on the left. His political views are actually formed by the candidates themselves. He does not vote for Dems or Reps. He always extends invitaions to candidates in elections, usually local ones to come on the show, and say what they have to say. After hearing things, he formulates his opinions. Just because he doesn't like Rush, doesn't mean he is a leftist.

I don't care what he expects, I just care what he says. And sometimes he is right.


Did Rush hang up on you or something?  Nuts

Heavymetal has the perfect definition. Rush makes sense about 1 % of the time, otherwise he is another blathering idiot. How this fool has been on the air this long is beyond my understanding. Or, perhaps not. After all Survivor, The Weakest Link and some travesty called The Jerry Springer Show are among the highest rated on television. Pandering to the mindless masses seems to be a great formula for success.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Those shows cater to people with too much free time, people with too much free time, and white trash, respectively.

He isn't a fool, and he has been on the air because he has been saying something RIGHT for the past 13 years and tens of millions of people enjoy listening to him.

A question to all the leftist Rush bashers-- do you even LISTEN to Rush Limbaugh? If so, how much? If not, why do you even open your mouths?

Actually, I'm NOT leftist (full-time card carrying anyway), I listen to Rush practically every day(because of the job I do) and I live about ten minutes away from him.

Occassionally I agree with Rush. He did an incredible interview with Rudy Giulianni about a month or two ago. I laugh when self serving cartoon charectors like Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson play right into his hands.

But it boils down to this; when I was 12 or 13, my dad told me "not to believe everything I heard."

Not every evil thing in the world is the Demon-crats fault. Not every good thing in the world is the result of Republican forsight & ingenuity. Yet Rush demands that basic premise from his loyalists. They're suckers.

Although I must say the calls the station used to get from "Dittoheads" telling us that our Emergency Broadcast System severe weather interuptions were actually a Clinton federal government plot to silence their hero...have tapered off.

Yeah, same with me.. I don't always agree with him-- a lot of the time, but not all the time. I don't think hes far enough right.  Laugh out loud And, yes, I love it when he rips on Jackson, et al, and plays the Paul Shanklin parodies.

>Not every evil thing in the world is the Demon-crats fault. Not every good thing in the world is the result of Republican forsight & ingenuity.

I know, I know... and I'm not Republican.  Big grin

>...were actually a Clinton federal government plot to silence their hero...have tapered off.

Well, while I really doubt the Clintons had anything to do with it, I will suggest that the stations did. Stations have been known, as has the local Seattle station KVI, to have "technical difficulties" or "weather news" during certain segments of certain shows (ie Rush and Savage).

Even the Leftmedia controls the Rightmedia.  Laugh out loud

So you're one of them huh? An insidious leftist plot everywhere you look. As a broadcaster, I can now confirm you don't know what you're talking about.

Why would stations work to silence a cash cow like Rush? Why would they shut up the show that consistently makes them the most money? For politics? Why the hell do they have him to begin with?

Rest assured, when a line of thunderstorms responsible for creating an F4 tornado (which thankfully tore up only a few corn fields) and an F3 tornado (which tore up a junior high school....luckily it was summer) is rolling across your primary broadcast area......as a broadcaster your moral and legal responsibility is to interupt the exalted Mr. Limbaugh and report severe weather.

Even Rush would agree.

I'm a "dittohead" to. Personally, I think that his greatest contribution is that he has "stirred the pot" and is getting people to start thinking again. Do I blindly agree with every sylable that comes out of his mouth? Of course not, but I do subscribe to his basic philosophies.

Metwrench why should I be shocked? It's just a matter (at least IMHO) that if your a Rush fan, thats fine, but you have to be able to a.) not believe everything he says, and take it as gospel and b.) at least admit his views and opinions are extremely one sided. I enjoy the Art Bell show, but I don't subscribe to every theory he does. I used to be a Rush fan, but I got really tired of this one sided rehtoric. If you like him, there is nothing wrong with that. Anybody that "stirs the pot" I am all for. Liek I said, its the people that blindly follow this dude are the ones that need to start thinking a little on there own.
