Stephen Colbert, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert was determined to side with Herman Cain on these allegations of sexual harassment from years ago. On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), he showed how easy it is to misconstrue innocuous gestures as sexual harassment.

And quite frankly, who hasn't been accused of sexual harassment at one point or another in their lives, he argued. He played a clip of Cain being asked if he'd ever been accused of sexual harassment, and Cain responded by turning the question around on the reporter.

So Colbert asked for a show of hands for who's been accused from his audience. Then he asked the ladies to put up both hands and "shake it up." Then he informed them they'd have a simple legal document to sign upon leaving, to ensure there wouldn't be any misunderstandings about what just happened.
