Ridonkulously Retardified!!!

This whole retarded debate over the use of the word retarded to describe shit that actually IS retarded is 30 shades of RETARDED – so fucking stop it right now with the back-and-forth blah blah over it!

Folks lost their gat damned minds earlier this week when it was reported that *OH NOES* White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used the word when he told a group of liberal activists that it was “fucking retarded” for them to run ads attacking against some Democrats.


And then the hooha over David Carney – consultant for Texas Governor Perry – saying it was retarded that one of the candidate holding rooms for a debate would be in a separate building from the debate venue.


Retarded is a great word! I say use the shit out of that bitch!
I mean, it’s just like fuck [fave], bitch [ultrafave], boob, kicks, dig, buzz, gank and so many other fantabulous phrasiological forms because it, too, can wear many hats!


It can be used as an adjective to describe Rush Limbaugh a person who is retarded.
It can be used as a noun to describe a group of people who are Republican retarded.
It can also as a verb to describe something that is hindering progress – which, if you really think about it kiddies, could apply to the statements from either Emanuel or Carney.

But wait. There’s more!

Retarded is also widely used in everyday life by everyday people everyDAY to describe a thing, a person, an object or an action that is a waste of time, bogus, cheesy, dense, empty-headed, flighty, groundless, hopeless, ill-advised, juvenile, kooky, lame, menial, nonsensical, obtuse, pitiful, raunchy, screwy, trifling, unintelligent, vacuous, weak, or yucky.

Yup! It’s a multi-tasker like that. It’s just how it rolls.

M’kay, pumpkins?
We all clear now?

    What’s really funny to me is that Palin’s set herself up as the “retarded” police.

    Which is about right, on many levels.

    The thing is, so many of the words we now use as synonyms for “stupid” started off life as medical terms: retarded, moron, idiot. Would Palin have us believe she’s never used any of those terms? If I didn’t know better, I’d swear this is an attempt to keep the spotlight on her, now that she doesn’t have a high-profile day job to go to.

    One of my personal faves is ‘hysterical’ which was originally the Latin ‘hystericus’ and was defined as a neurological condition that affected women with wonky woman parts.

    I have a friend, however, who is sent into an all-out RAGE when that word is used – convinced it’s part of a conspiracy to keep women down – all of which I, of course, find hysterical!!!

  • 7. Type Writer  |  February 5, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    From what I understand, the medical usage of “hysterical” was always a little derogatory towards women, in that it implied the mere presence of a womb caused some women to go crazy. But no one using it in casual conversation these days is doing so to put down women. I love this age we live in where people feel they have the right to be offended by every little thing…

      I blame conservative talk radio. For everything. Every. Single Thing.

      Except maybe yurts. Those I blame on Khan.

    TW — you have to meet my friend Kathleen! I keep trying to tell her that but she is soooooooo sensitive (which you know, of course, I see as bait 😉 ) hehe

    I have a fix for Rahm’s potty-mouth:

      Boo! Your link’s a dink — try again?

    My Super Retard Powers make me a better writer. Retard isn’t as good a word as c*cksucker, a personal and under used fave, but it’s definitely a power word.

  • 13. writechic  |  February 7, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    BREAKING NEWS!!!!! We have the definitive answer on implementing the use of the word Retard from Sarah Palin. It’s okay if Rush Limbaugh does it, but not Rahm Emmanuel. Thank God that’s settled.
