I hate to cite Wiki but it has the point I'm making outlined the best:
"Several factors affect the strength of the argument from analogy:
The relevance of the known similarities to the similarity inferred in the conclusion.
The amount and variety of the examples in the analogy.
The number of characteristics that the things being compared share."
If you want to use your analogy to paint a picture, fine. But to use it as exhibit A in your argument, based off the above criteria, doesn't give you a leg to stand on. In a word, specious.
