Someone who's not very smart but goes on talking and talking circuitously around a subject without ever making any coherent point. Could be used to describe many politicians, including several State of the Union addresses of the past decade. Also applies to university professors, conference speakers, TV and radio personalities, etc.
"I can't believe so many people voted for that meanderthal."
"How did this meanderthal ever get tenure?"
"I actually paid money to sit here and listen to this meanderthal?"
"Enough of this meanderthal! I'm changing the channel."

Heather: Kelly, your boyfriend, Cornelius, hasn’t talked to anyone the whole time, and he’s just been standing over there for about hour stuffing his face with nacho dip and slamming beers.

Kelly: I know, he’s being a total meanderthal.

Conversationalist that wanders from one subject to another with no apparent point, never reaching the end of the story.
Sorry I'm late for lunch, I got stuck in a cubicle listening to an unending stream of bullshit. I just couldn't break loose from that meanderthal.

The word basically describes a weirdfunky sort of 'non-linear' and integral approach in day-to-day routine; much gets accomplished overall, though in what would appear to the outside (non-meanderthal) observer as a randomly chaotic, somewhat disjointed fashion. The great productivity achieved thru this process by its skilled practitioners may often seem antithetical to the methodology of it
The meanderthal fashion of his workday always astounds his colleagues with how much he manages to get done with it.

Someone old enough, but still insufficiently intellectually developed to know that the universe does not revolve around them. This person believes that everything is all about THEM, they fail to take responsibility for themselves, their errors, and the way other people respond to their sometimes painfully self-centered behavior and thinking.
Paul: Hey, Chelsea, give me that piece of pie.
Chelsea: But Dad, this is the last piece.
Paul: Go in and get yourself something else then.
Paul takes pie away from his daugher, she slumps back into the house.
Bek: (Aside to Kathryn) Paul is such a meanderthal - that poor kid loves banana cream pie!

Similar to a modern day neanderthal.. this is an individual who is not only ignorant, abusive and always willing to spout hateful words to those who are smarter, but has the added bonus of being able to meander freely throughout the planet spreading their ignorance.
I wanted to get away from the local idiots but unfortunately no matter where I went, I was surrounded by meanderthals. There should be a law against that.
