    Here's a rundown on the whole kerfuffle.

    Oh, dear. Michael Goldfarb, who's clearly better off blogging about ABBA and criticizing people for playing Dungeons and Dragons, just pooped his pants on national television. The McCain campaign is making a last ditch effort to make SCARY MUSLIM NOISES at Barack Obama, and since Goldfarb doesn't have any sort of reputation worth salvaging, it figures that he'd be doing duty here.

    But CNN's Rick Sanchez calls Goldfarb out for the hypocrisy of hyping a sinister connection between Obama and a guy that McCain funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to, and from there, Goldfarb goes right off the rails, refusing to answer Sanchez's questions with anything other than intimations. Repeatedly asked to name a second anti-Semite that Obama allegedly "pals around with," Goldfarb does nothing but issue hollow, Page Six-style intimations.

    What a gutless wonder. And here I'd been led to believe that this campaign took its cues from some kind of war hero.


    SANCHEZ: Now, is the -- I need to parse this out as best I can from you, Michael. The fact that John McCain's organization gave $448,000 to this group that was founded by Mr. Khalidi, is there no reason for some to be critical of as well just as some might be critical of Barack Obama for being at a meeting with some girl read a poem for example?

    GOLDFARB: Look. You are missing the point again, Rick. The point is that Barack Obama has a long track record of being around anti-Semitic and anti-Israel and anti-American rhetoric.

    SANCHEZ: Can you name one other person besides Khalidi who he hangs around that is anti-Semitic?
    Story continues below

    GOLDFARB: Yes, he pals around with William Ayers.

    SANCHEZ: No, no, the question I asked you is that can you name one other person who he hangs around with who is anti-Semitic? Because that is what you said.

    GOLDFARB: Look, we know there are people who Barack Obama has been in hot water--

    SANCHEZ: Michael, I asked you the name one person. One.

    GOLDFARB: Rick --

    SANCHEZ: You said he hangs around with people who are anti-Semitic. Okay. Khalidi and name other people that we all know about?

    GOLDFARB: And rick, we both know who number two is.

    SANCHEZ: Who? Would you tell us?

    GOLDFARB: No, Rick, I think we all know who we are talking about here.

    SANCHEZ: Somebody who is anti-Semitic that he hangs around with.

    GOLDFARB: I think we all know who we are talking about.

    SANCHEZ: Say it.

    GOLDFARB: I think we all know who we're talking about, rick.

    SANCHEZ: Well, you say that his policies differ from Barack Obama and many other people, and either way, we have the leave it at that.
