No need to worry though, guys...he supports us on everything else.

Greg Sargent has more:

When Wolf Blitzer pointed out that Obama also labels Hamas a terrorist organization, making his position the same as McCain's, Lieberman said, "that's true," adding that Obama "clearly doesn't support any of the values and goals of Hamas."

Then, with depressing predictability, came the inevitable caveat:

But the fact that the spokesperson for Hamas would say they would welcome the election of Senator Obama really does raise the question, "Why?"

And it suggests the difference between these two candidates.

This ridiculous guilt-by-association crap needs to stop already. Ed Schultz made a great point the other day: What if someone in, say, the KKK came out and said they would welcome the election of McCain over Obama? Does that have bearing on McCain, his candidacy or his beliefs? Of course not. But we wouldn't then go around, adding the caveat, "Why does the KKK support him?"

Only desperate neocons stoop that low (see: Joe Lieberman, above.)

Can you help us out?
