This afternoon, the randy, handsy San Diego Mayor finally addressed the public regarding his penchant for perversion. He conceded that his “failure to respect women and the intimidating conduct [he] engaged in at times is inexcusable,” but he’s not ready to throw in the towel just yet:

That’s right: Filner’s not going anywhere — at least as far as his mayorship is concerned. He announced that he’ll be entering a two-week “rehab” program to come to terms with his failings and “become a better person.”

Now, few people are convinced that two weeks of vaca- er, rehab will rid Filner of his fondness for harassing women:

Maybe there’s a chance the therapists can do something about this:

The horror!

Ugh. Heaven help us if Filner starts hanging out with this guy.

    Reminds me of an old saying: By the age of 40, you have the face you have earned.

  • Guest

    god, he’s so dang creepy looking!

    • trixiewoobeans

      And you can’t fix “creepy!”

  • BoscoBolt

    “Hey ladies … sorry about all that groping stuff … can’t we still be friends … really, really special friends … like, maybe tonight?”

    In Possibly Strategic Move, Filner Supporter Starts Recall Campaign

  • NRPax

    I’d swear that when he gets home, he peels off the skin mask to reveal the reptilian creature underneath.

  • LinTaylor

    “Haven’t you ever heard of the healing power of laughter?”

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Shorter………. “Yes I harassed those women, but I pretty much expect you people will buy my UNheartfelt appology, and I fully expect most of you will forget about it over the next two weeks while I lay low and hope more Weiner pics surface in New York or some other scandal detracts your attention away from me”


    This guy is uglier than Wiener, who knew it was possible?

  • CO2 Producer

    Leave Filner alone! He’s almost a human!

  • Roger Taylor

    For the love of God, somebody tell me that was photoshopped!

    That’s a face that could launch a thousand Steven King novels…

  • Clete Torres

    That is one creepy-looking SOB.
    Glad I didn’t see him last week when I was in SD.

  • greatunconformity

    If Mr. Roper and Mr. Furley had a child…

    “The behavior I have engaged in over many years is wrong,” Filner said in
    a press conference. “My failure to respect women and the intimidating
    conduct I engaged in at times is inexcusable.”

    So I’ll keep my job, get a bit of “therapy” and it’ll all be good and Democrats will excuse it again. Since it’s San Diego I don’t need anyone but Democrats to be ok with me…

    What? Oh, you thought I MEANT “inexcusable” when I said it… yeah, I didn’t mean any of that crap. Just trying to protect my phony-baloney job here.

    • gekkobear

      And in two weeks he’ll be cured; which surprises me.

      I thought it took about 40 days to properly cure a ham.

  • trixiewoobeans

    To the tune of “There’s No Business Like Show Business”

    There’s no perverts
    Like Dem perverts
    They smile when they are low.
    Always trying to cop a little feeling…
    Always trying to grope inside your skirt,
    Purchasing some Ladies of the Evening…

    And sending pictures…without their shirt!

  • GaryTheBrave

    People actually voted for THAT!?

  • CatHerder

    Didn’t we just hear something of the sort a few days ago? Can’t recall the fella’s name, but it seems to me it rhymed with ‘meaner’.

  • Jeremy
  • Richard Wayne

    Kinda has a Sandusky look to him, just sayin’…

    • Jeremy

      Yeah he does and who knows what else he has done in his past.

  • John W.

    For the victims of this repulsive man’s actions, quite possibly the worst part of the experience would be having that semi-humanoid face just inches away while his hands were squeezing and clutching and groping their bodies. And I can easily envision him giggling deviously the entire time, leering at his victims with that same grin on his face.

  • KansasGirl

    He looks like a lizard.

  • twistedgenius

    Kinda reminds me of Joe Bidens creepy smile also.

  • Guest

    I’m surprised no one has thought of this “smiling Bob”. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw his photo. :-)

  • EllisWyatt

    I’m surprised no one has thought of the other “Smiling Bob”. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw Filner’s photo. :-)

    • Joel A. Edge

      Smiling Bob looks decent in comparison. I’d have to agree with the Joker comment.

  • CrustyB

    He looks like a Nazi caricature of Jewish people.
