Aside: Does it bother anyone else that Dittoheads aren't locked to that Personality that originally controlled them? I'm not necessarily arguing (a few Alien Abductions/Dittoheads in Bermuda's hands is a dangerous thing), and yes, I can look at them as leaderless sheep wandering from Charismatic Leader to Messiah and back, but something in there rubs me just a bit wrong . . .
Frankly, no, it doesn't bother me. In fact, I revel in it. I delight in the cynical knowledge that the shortsighted yahoos who recently followed Bill Clinton can just as easily follow George Bush. When I'm playing a Bermuda deck with two or more Dittoheads, I'll rearrange the Dittoheads gratuitously, just to underscore the awesome interchangeability of the Mindless Zombie Soul-sucking Drones. Muahahaha!
