Who is Diddly Squat?
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 02:24 PM by ElsewheresDaughter
i stumbled upon this site today...anyone ever see it? /

Have you Dittoheads noticed that Rush Limbaugh no longer introduces himself saying, "I'm almost always right 98.4% of the time, according to the latest opinion audit of The Sullivan Group."? He's subtracted The Sullivan Group Gone! And added "documented." Now, he's "almost always right 98.5% of the time, documented.", but doesn't tell us who is doing the documenting!

Now, that's brilliant bullshit. When it comes to bullshit, Rush will run circles around Dr. Frankfurt, whose book, "On Bullshit," is number one in the New York Times Book Review of June 5, 2005.

Now that we know who Deep Throat is, the next compelling mystery is, who is or was "The Sullivan Group?" Who in The Sullivan Group had the authority to certify to Rush Limbaugh that when you put almost in front of always, what follows is meaningless! Who certified that you can audit an opinion? Rush's credibility is based on his mantra, "I'm almost always right 98.3, 4, 5% of the time." What Dittoheads hear is, "I'm right 98 blah, blah, blah, of the time."

Who is Rush's Deep Throat at The Sullivan Group? Or is Rush his own Deep Throat?
12 Steps To Recovery For Dittoheads
Admit that Rush is powerless without you as a "willing accomplice."

Come to believe that a power greater than Rush could restore you to facing reality. Seeing how things are, not the way things ought to be.

Make a decision to turn your life over to the care of God (however you understand Him) because you understand Him better than Rush.

Ask God to help you develop your sense of humor, so you do not to fall prey to Rush's skilled sophistry.

Seek though prayer and meditation to lessen your contract with Rush.

You're entirely ready to have God remove the defect in your character which was metastasized by Rush.

Make a list of all the persons Rush has harmed.

Ask Rush to make amends to them all.

Ask Rush to make direct amends to such people.

You admit to God, yourself, and another person the exact nature of the wrongs committed by Rush.

Humbly ask God to remove Rush's insatiable desire for Vicodin.

Having had a personal spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, try to carry the message to other Dittoheads to offer them the chance for recovery.

5. He's a cousin of Bo
I guess he stopped using his first name, Dick, and is now just going by Diddley-Squat. He's alright but a bit...odd.

I heard Jack Shit lives next door to him, but I've never met him, so I don't know Jack Shit.

4. Al Franken had a good "dittohead" segment today
It was at the end of his second hour. They covered Joe Wilson and Rush's "out of context" and purposeful misinterpretation of Wilson's assertions.

6. That's Diddly W. "Dubya" Squat. AKA: Shrub Ubb Ya.
Widely known for inventing a new language: Incoherancy. Highlights of which include the word New-Kew-Lur and odd but popular allusions to victory such as "Mission Accomplished" and "Bring it On" despite all too obvious failure.

He is also well known for a facial expression resembling that of a certain primate and a disarming chuckle made at totally inappropriate times. "I feel real bad about the civilian casualties..heh, heh."

For best results in dealing with him, he should be provided with plenty of pretzels and a bicycle.

7. If it is the Diddly Squat I knew
He is an elderly (70ish) comic who lived in Philly but traveled to NYC to do comedy open mikes. Very genial and politically left but not especially funny.

I haven't seen him in at least 5 years but I haven't been doing comedy lately either.
