    Yes, it's "hear hear", not "here here".

    Also, apostrophes do not denote plurals, and if anyone else mixes up "there" and "their", I'm going to hunt and sleigh (ho! ho!) them.

    Originated in the British parliament in the 18th century as a contraction of 'hear him, hear him'. It is still often heard there although it is often used ironically these days
