Someone who is arrogant, self-righteous, and over-talkative. This person thinks highly of him or herself, but realistically knows nothing other than how to whore for attention.

Not to be confused with the definition of stupid or naive.
My neighbor is naive, so I get why he sometimes does things that are stupid. Sarah Palin is a true retard, so I get why SNL made fun of her.

Someone who takes the Urban Dictionary this seriously:


v. re-TARD
1. (non-transitive) to decelerate.
2. (transitive) to cause a given object to decelerate.

Note: This word is NOT a noun, therefore anyone who descends to the level of naming an unfortunate person with mental disabilities (actually known as a retardee, a subject of mental retardation) a "retard" (with a mysterious emphasis on the first syllable) can be classified as illiterate, and can be ignored as a result. These people should be ignored anyway as they obviously have no sense of decency or sensitivity. This also applies to people who call non-retardees, "retards", implying that to be a "retard" indicates a status worthy of ridicule.
1. At that point the car had, for some reason, begun to retard.
2. At that point the driver had, for some reason, begun to retard his car.

"Did you see that retarded definition by that retard on Urban Dictionary?

"I did. What's up with that retard?"

"Probably a retarded virgin who thought this was Webster's"
"Retard. Can you believe anyone voted that definition up?"
"I know, what a bunch of retards."

ReTard n. Portmanteu of "Republican" and "retard". Someone who, intoxicated by an assumption about 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 middle class, easily led and with poor insight to society's problems, and naive about the mechanics of politics and utterly ignorant about how power actually works.

(R)eply (E)veryone (tard)

Someone who has not mastered the very simple difference between email's "reply" and "reply all" actions. The RE-tard is consistently spamming a distribution list's mailbox with their comment, which is relevant only to them and the sender. A true RE-tard will do this even when the original sender of an email to many people list explicitly requests recipients do not "reply all."
I can't stand it when a new system rolls out at my job. My AVP boss always spams her stupid questions to the whole company like the RE-tard she is.

The modern equivalent of attention-whoring, infiltrating reactionary College Republicans: In the 1980's people like Grover Norquist, Jack Abramoff and Ralph Reed infiltrated college campuses passing out phony-populist, pro-corporatist and anti-leftist pamphlets and material. This was counter and reactionary to the counterculture or hippie movement a decade earlier. Today they do this kind of thing on the internet, infiltrating forums and other websites, proselytizing their backward messages. We already know what the R stands for, the etard is the web equivalent of these types.
FreedomWorks maintains an army of R-etards to constantly whine and bitch about the federal government in their relentless proection of the profits of companies who outsource jobs.
