"Retardican” (retard + Republican) is a political epithet that has been cited in print since at least January 1996. The term has been capitalized as “Retardican” (after “Republican") and has also been written as the lower-case “retardican” (after “retard").
Similar political terms using “retard” (or “-tard") include “sheeptard” (since March 1999), “Republitard” (since April 2002), “rightard” (since January 2003), “patriotard” (since April 2003), “Demotard” (since July 2003), “libtard” (since July 2004), “GOPtard” (since July 2004), “leftard” (since August 2004), “wingtard” (since October 2004), “neotard” (since May 2002), “conservatard” (since November 2005), “truthtard” (since October 2006), “Muzztard” (since December 2006), “ecotard” (since July 2007), “climatard” (since December 2008), “teatard” (since March 2009), “crumbtard” (since May 2011) and “occutard” (since October 2011).
a member of the republican party who believes that there way is the only way, they can do no wrong, are always right, and generally will push their view until they cause the end of the world.
I tried talking to that Retardican about politics, but their view was so one sided.

Just substitute “Clinton” for Phil Gramm, and “Retardicans” for libbbruls, and it’s just *YOU* all over.

Let’s face it, the Retardican mentality is still looking for payback for Watergate and Irangate.

The Retardicans were smart enough to to realize a bill containing a “health” exception could be perverted to mean literally ANYTHING the woman wants, including mental health-like she will “just die” if she has to pay child support and she let it go too long to have a regular abortion.

“Retardicans” ? A New Word for GOP’s
Posted: June 28, 2010 by Chef Jeffrey Allen Kaufman in Uncategorized
“Retardican” comes from the melding of the words Republican and Retard. After hearing all the drama over the Palin ordeal, and then thinking that somehow that “retard” word surely does apply when you think of her last attempt at election, I have decided that despite the harm that may come from offending a real retarded person, using the combination might quell any issues with the word being used. After all we are addressing the “retards” of the political world, no not you people, who voted for McCain, but McCain and the Retardican politicians in general. I mean, how do you expect the civilian populace to handle such a horrible agenda of back pocket racism, attacks on unemployed Americans, and mass political bullsh*t that has done nothing but hinder and destroy America? How should we handle it? Name calling at this point would be mute, so I guess a title of endearment is in order.

I’m guessing you don’t have a child with special needs like I do. It shouldn’t be that having a family member with mental retardation is the only way to understand how painful it is to read a post like yours. You’re saying that it’s okay to make a mockery of others based on IQ alone. Believe it or not, the disabled are actual human beings who get when people like you are mocking them. You certainly know better and can come up with some other way to describe Sarah Palin and republicans without dehumanizing people who aren’t quite as clever as you.
