Should have put “Adios Commie” as a comment. Hope it didn’t offend you Mr. Rooney.

Not

60 Minutes? What is that? I seem to remember a 60-something three decades ago, but nothing since.....

Andy Rooney to step down from his “60 Minutes” role

Step down or fall down? It’s about time. Doddering fools at the nursing home refer to him as “the crazy old man.”

Andy Rooney might have stepped down 25 years ago. The person stepping down now is Andy Looney and thank god.

He hung on beyond satire. Even the comic mimics stopped doing him years ago.

He's been dead for a long time but his eyebrows just kept on keeping on.

Does anyone remember when 60 minutes wasn’t a propaganda loudspeaker for the democrat party? Does anyone remember when they played it straight down the middle exposing both the right and the left?

Neither do I.

Here’s an Andy Rooney segment for you.

“I’m old. I like things the way they used to be. I don’t like new-fangled contraptions. I generally support FDR-era policies. Did I mention that I’m old? Andy Rooney. 60 Minutes”

I thought he’d died 4 years ago. Of course, I haven’t watched 60 minutes for about 10 years, so I wouldn’t know.

Yep! Point / Counterpoint.

That was the model for the Dan Akroyd / Jane Curtain Weekend Update news skit on Saturday Night Live:

Jane, you ignorant slut!

Guy is in his 90s and has spoken of retiring for a while now. No surprise here. We all loved his Grandpa Simpson rants. “Computers suck. I used my trusty typewriter for 60 years and it never broke on me or got obsolete in 3 years.” Eventually he broke down and admitted computers were better (no doubt after discovering Internet pornography).

My prediction is that he’ll be dead in a month. Retirement usually kills these kind of guys.

60 Minutes is still #1 among the patrons of America’s nursing homes...

My mother is a prime example of that. She is 80 and a former democrat who re-registered Republican during George W. Bush's first term. She can't stand Obama and the democrats now and gets all her news from Fox. But no matter how many examples of lies and propaganda I point out to her from the MSM and 60 minutes she still watches it every week. She also watches the liberal witches on The View every morning, I guess old habits die hard.

Long overdue. He’s about 800 years old and has had Alzheimer’s for about 775 of those years!!

He's old and cranky and boring. He's gotten into trouble for politically incorrect remarks about minority groups. He admits to being a liberal. He should have retired 20 or 30 years ago.

But why the "adios, commie"? That says more about you than about him.
