Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert was interrupted by sirens signaling an "Oppressed White Male Alert" for San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. Filner is accused of sexual harassment by eight different women to whom he did incredibly disgusting things, including nonconsentual face-slobbering and fondling.  

Responding to claims that he is not "fit" to lead, Colbert said, "If he is fit enough to hold a woman half his age in a headlock, I think he's fit enough to hold public office."

As Colbert noted, "Filner is not taking this lying down, or pinned against the office supply room door. He is fighting back by pointing out that he is the real victim here."

Filner wants San Diego to pay for his legal fees in the sexual harassment suit because the city did not teach him to NOT be a total creep who asks women to come to work without wearing underwear.

"That's right, it's true. It is San Diego's fault that Bob Filner harassed those women because he wasn't properlty trained. It's the same way it would be their fault if he killed someone because they never provided don't-murder training."

Poor guy.
