    Andy never uttered this crap.  You will see some of the things attributed to him in the link below.  My guess is the remainder is simply pulled out of some bigots arse and attributed to Andy Rooney.

      I read at work while trying to multi-task.  I see the snopes.com link in your diary.  Backing away from the keyboard carefully so as not to post before carefully reading again!

        for emphasis of just what a fraud it is.  

        About a year ago, I became aware of a more serious theft of my name and it is so hurtful to my reputation that it calls for legal action against the thief. Hundreds of people have written asking if I really wrote the 20 detestable remarks made under my name that have had such wide circulation on the Internet.

        Some of the remarks, which I will not repeat here, are viciously racist and the spirit of the whole thing is nasty, mean and totally inconsistent with my philosophy of life. It is apparent that the list of comments has been read by hundreds of thousands of Americans, many of whom must believe that it accurately represents opinions of mine that I don't dare express in my column or on television. It is seriously damaging to my reputation.

        Andy finds your(sender not diarist) email detestable, viciously racist, nasty, and mean
