    Dittos! I’m going to adopt another phrase, “dittos!” Here is the background. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Rush Limbaugh. He is a very well known, conservative, right wing, radio show host. I’m not sure how “dittos” got started, but the callers to his show, rather than going on and on to praise him, his views, and his program, as every caller used to do, they now just say, “dittos”, saving time, instead of giving him more praise and more accolades over the last callers’ praises. So, now every caller who calls his talk show, starts the dialogue with the word “dittos.” So, from now on, instead of praising you for every wonderful post you blog, I will also start with, “dittos”. Although I listen to him once in while, I don’t like him at all. His views are too conservative and backward for me, like the publicans (i.e., Bush) who he loves to defend on his show everyday. I listen as a reminder to many conservative extremists on the other side. 🙂

    How ironic! That wasn’t intentional, honest! (Ditto Definition: same here: used instead of repeating something that has just been said to indicate that the same thing applies to you) 😉 🙂

    Also the old Ditto Machine which we used in elementary school so long ago to make copies.

    Funny you should mention Rush.

    He got his start here in Sacramento. I’m not sure exactly when – 70’s or 80’s.

    He was on a local station with a conservative talk show.

    He loved to stir it up on the air so he would come out with all this crazy stuff to get his callers riled up, but he always left you with the feeling that it was all a put on. He didn’t seem to really believe half of what he said.

    Then he started to get popular and was eventually picked up by the network and his show became syndicated.

    Now it has all gone to his head and he has totally immersed himself in the bullsh*t.

    I used to listen to him to hear some of the ignorant people who would call in, now I can’t take 5 minutes of him.

    Dear Bijan, thanks and dittos!
    Too much encouragement for this “cut and paste” work but dittos anyway 🙂
    I don’t know this Rush, but BB2’s description sounds familiar. Beside the “beginner’ luck there must be something like the “bsh*t” luck! 🙂

    You’re probably lucky!
