Important Metaphor Devalued

Look like Rosa Parks to you?
New York Daily News opinionist Errol Louis says of Cindy Sheehan, who drags her own son's dead body to anti-American lie fests is "Just like Rosa Parks". There is no comparison, Errol; not between the ladies and not between the issues involved. You cheapen the 'Rosa Parks' metaphor. Shame on you and on all writers that devalue the language to cover a rhetorical deficit. I can't believe Rosa would be happy with this either.
