What Roy Moore, Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK and Kevin Spacey are accused of doing is genuinely horrible; what Franken did (in the first case, and maybe even the second) was puerile.
Whether this is true or not should have absolutely no bearing on the fact that I just made the most epic prediction ever!
The prediction in itself isn't epic, of course. I thought it was quite obvious actually. But the way it was misunderstood - leading to you and others accusing me of being pro-rape and pro- paedophilia (I had never mentioned children, of course!) - was of epic proportions, really. Of hysterically epic proportions.
"I just made the most epic prediction ever" meaning I just predicted Senator Al Franken would be the next politician to get caught up in the accusations. This renders your response to me a complete non-sequitur.
