A Question About McCarthyite Guilt by Association

If Barack Obama can link John McCain to George Bush every day-- as well as the oil companies, Wall Street fat cats, etc. -- why is it an impermissible "distraction" to link Barack Obama to his political patron William Ayers and his intellectual mentor Frank Marshall Davis and his former party the socialist/Marxist New Party?

Isn't the point of all these linkages the same -- to suggest that one's associates and allies substantially define one's thinking, and suggest that one's stated positions are actually dishonest to a large degree, whereas these associations reveal one's true, unexpressed positions?

Just curious if the Obama campaign or the MSM (but I repeat myself) will ever explain the distinction.
