n. Portmanteu of "liberal" and "retard". Someone who, intoxicated by being knowlegable
and right about
politics and economics, forgets that they need to get actual real
ordinary people to support them if their agenda is to be advanced. Often but not always rich, well meaning and with good insight to society's problems, but naive about
the mechanics of politics and utterly ignorant about
how power actually works.
"Them libtards at the Occupy protest are going
to get stomped by the riot squad because they're too smelly and weird for ordinary
people to support them. Sad really; they're right about
pretty much everything
but they have really shitty PR."
