ditto + -head, thought to be coined by callers to Rush Limbaugh's radio show who begin their remarks with "Ditto!" or "Dittoes!" to concur with a previous comment without restating it, but this claim largely remains unproven.

- (US, slang, pejorative) A term used to disparage someone who mindlessly agrees with an idea, especially those who agree only as a supporter of a person who expressed the idea.
