why do you want this job?

 In an interview yesterday my interviewer used the word "retarded"  in the slang way a lot of people use it.  I make it a point to not only not use that word, but also to correct other people who use it.  I have a sister with Down's Syndrome so it something that means a lot to me.

Should I have reminded my interviewer that this word is inappropriate?  Should I have kept my mouth shut and just tried to get this job I've been trying to get forever?  What would you have done?
