This kind of treatment only makes me like Ron Paul more.  Yes, he's still keeps company that is too wacky. (But honestly, what candidate hasn't? Not the current POTUS.)  And his ideology is far from a perfect fit for mine.  But every time he's dismissed out of hand I like him more.

Attention large media outlets: when Jon Stewart is giving a guy a fair hearing and you aren't, you need to re-evaluate your priorities. He's a comedian and he still doesn't condescend to dismiss Paul with a chuckle and an eye roll.

Of course Gary Johnson is still my favorite by a mile, and most media outlets don't even dismiss him.  They flat out refuse to acknowledge he exists.
