Here we go again.
Countless cases have been compared the 1995 Simpson criminal trial over the past 18-19 years, including that of another two-bit ‘star’ accused of killing his wife that a veteran high-profile-trial news reporter predicted would be as big as Simpson.
Now comes Fox News Latino’s Rick Sanchez’s George Zimmerman, OJ Simpson And The Art Of Getting Away With Things.
“It’s like reliving the OJ Simpson saga all over again. I’ve always believed that George Zimmerman and Simpson had much in common, but it became crystal clear this week when I heard his girlfriend tell 911 operators that ‘he knows how to do it, he knows how to play the game.’,” Sanchez espouses.
Really! Knowing “how to play the game” is about all those two narcissistic bullies do have in common. OK, that, plus both being narcissistic bullies and neither being able to stay out of trouble.
What else? None of the captivating elements that landed Simpson in the top 10 of the Trial of the Century — sports hero, beautiful people, money, celebrity, sex — rub off on Zimmerman in any way. Although the 21st Century is young, racism, violence against women and controversial verdict, while certainly Page 1 newsworthy, won’t by themselves or even together elevate Zimmerman to even the top 100 list.
The only thing Zimmerman’s most recent arrest proves is that, like so many gun nuts, without one, Zimmerman is a nobody.
