Entry: retardate (adj.)

In context: "'--- pretends he gets the most retardate PR staffer he can make hold crayons to send grotesque solecistic pseudo-impersonal replies to her pathetic letters.'"

Definition: Held back or in check; impeded; delayed.

but also, though I'm no fan of the usage:

A person who is retarded (retarded adj. 2); spec. a person diagnosed with learning difficulties or a mental disability.
