Hey retard, you're an idiot!

There is a lot of argument over whether calling someone a retard is a good idea or bad idea.

Is choosing not to use "retard" as an insult political correctness or simply being nice? While doing some research for this video, I found this site that details how the word idiot, imbecile and moron once all had medical definitions linked to degrees of mental retardation. Maybe the insult retard/retarded is destined to go the same way as these words and pass into common usage, losing its link to medical definitions of intellectual disability.

But isn't it fun knowing "idiot" is the worst insult of all?
