I have said for years that the only reason the word retarded is still connected with those with metal handicaps is because of well meaning but oversensitive Neighborhood Liberals who continue to remind us what that word used to mean. Don’t believe me? Let me ask you this: Do you find me calling somebody an “idiot” offensive? No? How about saying “you’re crazy”? Does that offend you? I’m guessing it doesn’t.

Coloquialisms Change: "Retarded" Shouldn't Still Be Offensive
Last week, Lebron James used the word "retarded" to essentially mean "foolish" directed at a reporter who was asking him a question in a post-game press conference. With all the usual logic of the politically correct Liberal press, they slammed him for being "offensive" and trashed Lebron for his insensitivity. Many people will agree that this word is in fact insulting and unnecessary. Yet I take a different stance.
