"I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard." Ann Coulter referring to President Barack Obama in a tweet during the final presidential debates October 22, 2012.
Like the "N word" or "fag," the word "retard" has joined the class of words disfavored in public discourse and polite society because these words are most commonly understood to be slurs, used to hurt or diminish a person, not to classify them in any helpful manner.
