Simile of the Year

In the Comments to Kevin Drum's Political Animal blog entry (querying why the print and tv media have declined to comment on Bush's fumblestuck perf at the presser on Tuesday), one "Rick Rettberg" says, apropos varying viewer reactions to Bush's perf, "It's a little like the OJ Simpson verdict. Depending on who you are, things look very different."

So, the Confidence Man's follow-up, if I may (I'm not shouting; I think I'm a must-call): does that mean, in this equation, that pro-Bush partisans are the (ahem) moral equivalent of blacks believing in OJ's simon purity?
