a.k.a. dittohead, ditto heads

People who say they are in perfect alignment on an issue, an idea, or a belief system.

Historical perspective: This term was coined by Rush Limbaugh to refer to his legion of faithful followers who begin their remarks with "Ditto!" or "Dittoes!" to agree with a previous comment. A "dittohead" is a devotee of his radio program or his opinions and now refers to someone who mindlessly agrees with an idea, especially those who agree only as a supporter of a person who expressed the idea.

I've heard "dittohead" also refers to people who blindly followed someone else's idea, even if the idea that the person using the word "dittohead" thought was totally stupid and wrong.
