In this edition, Joe Klein has yet to comment on why "right wing extremist", and recent Time Magazine Cover Girl, Ann Coulter is going to get some extra face time on fellow Time Warner property CNN as a reward for that extremism.

I know there are those who wonder why we bother with this stuff because it's all very predictable.

1) Ann Coulter makes racist or homophobic comment.
2) Ann Coulter provokes outrage.
3) Ann Coulter gets more TV appearances because of it.

It's true. But I'm not outraged at 1) or 2), I'm outraged by 3). That part was predictable as well, but it's important to keep calling them on it.
