I'm one of those. What does the phrase really mean?

 

It can actually be a blessing, but with a slight change of inflection?

 

"You are as dumb as a bag of hammers and only by God's grace are you still functioning" is one translation

Yep.

 

And if the conversation is about someone who isn't present, then "Aww....  Bless his heart..."  (usually shortly after his name is mentioned) means "I am not saying this to be ugly (another southernism meaning intentionally insulting or demeaning), but the fact is that we all know he's just flat stupid"

Yeah, you go ahead and keep on thinking that.

 

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to append the "bless your heart" there.
