Detroit Lions Quarterback Under Media Fire for Politically Incorrect Costume

By Debbie Schlussel
I think Detroit Lions quarterback Jon Kitna’s Halloween costume was hilarious. And so do his teammates. But not the Mainstream Media, which is having a hissy fit over it. That’s even though they’ve already secured a sort of apology from him. And it’s not enough. Add him to the Ann Coulter support group for objects of hysterical overreaction.
So what horrible thing did he dress up as, which raised the press hackles? Hitler? A dead Muslim terrorist? An ugly feminist (redundant)? Mark David Chapman? Heather Mills McCartney sans leg, but with English barrister-lawyer strapped to side?


Jon Kitna & Wife in Their “Offensive” Halloween Costumes

Nope. Instead, he dressed up as Detroit Lions Assistant Coach Joe Cullen, who, last year, drove drunk and completely naked to a Dearbornistan Wendy’s drive-thru to order a late night snack. He pleaded guilty and got counseling.
Kitna donned a t-shirt and pants that were airbrushed to look like a fat man’s sagging naked body with a G-string painted on . . . to a Halloween charity bowling event, Monday Night. His wife dressed as a Wendy’s drive-thru employee.
I think that’s pretty clever. But the Detroit media–and reportedly, “The Naked Coach”–don’t like it. And they’ve created something of a mini-controversy over this huge problem facing crime-infested, drop-out ridden Detroit. Several media outlets are making a big deal of Kitna’s devout Christian beliefs. But, who says devout Christians can’t have a witty sense of humor? His costume’s probably not good for on-the-job morale, but that’s another story entirely. Plus, Cullen is the Defensive Line Coach, which has nothing to do with quarterback Kitna’s position.
And here’s a tip: If you don’t want to be made fun of . . . don’t drive naked (and drunk) to a Wendy’s drive-thru at Midnight. That’s not exactly Christian, either. I may be Jewish, but I think I’m on solid ground in that pronouncement.
Any questions?
Watch the news video at Detroit’s FOX 2 News, a station that not only criticizes such hazards as football players’ Halloween costumes, but also panders to Islamofascists. Guh-reat combo.

So where were these same MSM’ers when Bill Maher went to some costume party (and was photgraphed – probably can find it on Google images) dressed as Steve Irwin with a protruding stingray barb? Just more MSM hypocrisy.

Geez, I love you, Deb! You get it!

Yeesh…yet another fabricated controversy. If the team’s management has a problem with this, that’s fine. But for the media to be feigning horror over it is just ridiculous.

In my opinion, this was the greatest costume of the year. Plus I’m sure the vast majority of Detroit Lion fans could care less what Kitna does off the field as long as he keeps the team winning on the field. And frankly if he takes this team to the playoffs he could actually drive naked through a Wendy’s drive through and still be considered a hero in Detroit.

Wake up, Debbie! You’re missing the latest news scandal — Hillary Clinton has been making whoopy with her Muslim lesbian lover who also works in her office. It’s making the rounds on the web. Apparently a staffer is leaking the info.
Heh heh heh. Poor Obama. He won’t have a chance now. The moonbats will line up behind Hillary before you can yell “strap on device!”

Debbie, my friend, I think you’re mixed up about who is the good guy here and who is the bad guy.
I’m pretty sure Coach Cullen drove through that Dearbornista Wendy’s drive-thru lane totally nude because he wanted to “shock and awe” the al Qaeda-sympathizing moron who was working the window that night. Coach Cullen’s act was a show of force. He was rattling his saber. He was trying to intimidate the window worker and scare him right back to Iraq or Afghanistan or whatever.
I, for one, think that Coach Cullen acted in an unselfish, patriotic, and even heroic way that night. He paid a price for it, too. He took one for the American team.
What gives this Kitna clown the right to mock a true patriot like Coach Cullen? Whose side is Kitna on? Does Kitna support the Islamofascists? Does Kitna hate America? Is Kitna a liberal, for God’s sake? I suspect he is.

Loved him in Seattle. Love him in Detroit. Making fun of the coach is a time honored tradition. Kitna’s just raised the bar.

At first I thought it was a picture of Peyton Manning with his shirt off.

Read in the freep today that coach Cullen was not at all upset, in fact he was quoted as saying he thought it was a very good costume.

Well Debbie, My mom was a nun at one time and I was raised Christian and her advice to me was as you say: If you don’t want to be talked about, don’t do anything worth talking about!
It has stopped me from some very foolish things…MOST of the time hehe.
