a person who is mentally retarded, but can be propped up through staged appearances in limited contexts and posed in a variety of situations. High functioning attributes include an ability to overreact to real or imagined threats, denial through distraction and frequent changes of subject. May serve as cover to con-schemes when place in position of authority. Has no self awareness and therefore no ability to feel shame or guilt. Overconfidence is mistaken for strength in people with this disability. Religion is often cited in order to maintain cohesiveness and order. HFR's in positions of power attract highly loyal Sheeple followers. HFR's tend to live the paradox of the self guided puppet, yet require input from non HFR's for their material.
George W. Bush is both the commander in cheif and the poster boy for all high functioning retards.
