Friday's Morning Joe on MSNBC marks the day when host Joe Scarborough officially abandoned his "middle man" act and returned to his highly partisan, right wing roots. Earlier this week, Alabama football coach Nick Saban compared his team's recent losses to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. Yeah. Scarborough, a die hard Alabama fan, was off the day Saban made his comments and co-host Willie Geist brings up an offensive e-mail he sent (partial transcript pictured above) that day to defend the coach's ridiculous remarks. Geist suggests the e-mail was written tongue in cheek, but Scarborough stands behind his words.

I don't give a damn about Alabama football, what I'm concerned about is the way Joe chose to offend victims of real tragedy by comparing their suffering to a football loss? -- because it's his favorite college football team? WTF do liberals have to do with a coach's self-involved idiotic remarks? E-mail Joe (scroll down for e-mail section) and let him know how you feel about his comments.

Can you help us out?
