Do they have the "three strikes you're out" in America? Isn't she coming close?
2001-10-12 07:30:10 AM  
Too many people are letting Jenna Bush off the hook for underage drinking charges when they should be concentrating on their relationship with Jesus.
2001-10-12 07:36:01 AM  
Tsubaki, they do have three strikes and you're out in the United States. Her father was responsible for it in Texas. It won't apply to his daughters because a) They're the presidents little girl so charges will be dropped b) They're the presidents little girl so charges will be dropped.

I think its a stupid law, as do I think the alcohol related age laws are, but I think its even worse that you can get off for being the presidents daughter. This goes double for Bush since he's so in favour of enforcing morals on everybody else.

Is this all ? She tried to buy a marga-farking-rita. Please tell me there's more to it.
At least when Euan Blair did it, (at 16) he was "found sprawled in central London by police, who arrested him for being "drunk and incapable". "
Ha Ha

Yeah, we rock at having heads of government's children behaving badly - our last PM's son married a topless model.
2001-10-12 08:08:31 AM  
what a biiiiig surprise!
2001-10-12 08:09:15 AM  
Actually, I think the three strikes rule (in Texas) applies only to felonies. Buying booze underage is a misdemeanor. I've been to Austin, and generally speaking if you're old enough to reach the bar at Chuy's they'd sell- I find it interesting that the first call the bartender made wasn't to the police but the newspaper.

Nicely done, Britons- may our presidential offspring aspire to your level of debauchery.
2001-10-12 08:09:56 AM  
At least none of these problems at the EuroFarkFest, since that will be at my place.

I want that preview thingee.
2001-10-12 08:18:24 AM  
I agree its a stupid law-but if they are going to let her off the hook, they should let everyone else in this same exact situation off easy. How many other kids are going to out on this charge, especially if they were just charged with an alcohol violation two weeks prior?

What shiate.
2001-10-12 08:25:17 AM  
I think shrub's daughter is setting a fantastic example for all those underage hotties in our great nation. I just wish I was 18 again so I could take advantage of the situation without getting arrested myself.
2001-10-12 08:32:31 AM  
Geez just drive to texas and do all the alcohol, strippers and drugs you want jenna.
2001-10-12 08:32:46 AM  
So what does Rush have to say about this? I know very well if the same thing would have happened to Clintons Daughter there would be been a big "evil anti-jesus unmoral slob in the white house" thing....

Clinton had an Affair... taken to court and although he did break a law by lieing... he was taken to coart in the first place for??? He did something not right, but does not break laws... I think i saw a stat that 39% of all males have an affair sometime in their lives....

Jenna accaully breaks a law... although a simple one.... Oh oh well... we will let her walk... not even community service time? Come on...
2001-10-12 08:35:53 AM  

This is from the Dallas News after her second arrest:

"Even if her probation is not revoked, her earlier plea would mean a stiffer penalty if she is charged and convicted in Tuesday's incident. For a second offense, a minor must serve 20 to 40 hours of community service - compared with eight to 12 hours for a first offense.

The stakes are even higher for a third offense: up to six months in jail and a $2,000 fine. "
2001-10-12 08:36:35 AM  
Did Margret Thatcher have kids?? Uuuugggghhh! That is a scary thought.
2001-10-12 08:45:49 AM  
We don't talk about Mark Thatcher. If I remember rightly he was a really crap rally driver, who kept getting lost.
2001-10-12 08:48:22 AM  
Someguy: yeah, but still not life in the state pen. If she wants to get piss drunk and make a fool of herself than by all means let her.
2001-10-12 08:48:43 AM  
Goatman was referring to John Major's son. I know he wasnt much of a PM, and most people have probably forgot about him, but he did do the job in between Thatcher and Blair
2001-10-12 08:58:13 AM  
I have actually met the topless model that is Emma Noble who James Major married and let me tell you the tv plays games. Her ass wasn't as perky as it seemed when she was a hostess on The Price is Right. I would go so far to say it was on holiday... GOING SOUTH.
2001-10-12 09:06:13 AM  
someone actually banged maggie?
2001-10-12 09:11:41 AM  
Hey she was fined $100. That is almost a half weeks allowance.
2001-10-12 09:11:53 AM  
Jenna Bush let off the hook do-dah, da-dah!
2001-10-12 09:16:57 AM  
Sounds like she got what most other underage drinkers who got caught would get. No problem with that
2001-10-12 09:22:04 AM  
She should just puff. No ID needed. Man, both her and her sister are hawt...Chelsey kinda makes me feel funny, too.
I wonder...

Did Nixon have a daughter?

I bet Taft's daughters were lil' hotties!
2001-10-12 09:28:05 AM  
Clanjade: Try reading the article before you post so you will at least have an idea what your talking about.
2001-10-12 09:33:44 AM  
"I think its even worse that you can get off for being the presidents daughter."

Yeah, but there are two sides to that coin. Usually the owners of an establishment don't go alerting the media just for seeing some underage drinker.
And c'mon, anyone who's ever been to college has been caught drinking underage and has gotten off with nothing more than a slap on the wrists.
2001-10-12 09:36:55 AM  
"I know very well if the same thing would have happened to Clintons Daughter there would be been a big "evil anti-jesus unmoral slob in the white house" thing.... "

Can't say anything for Chelsea, and personally even though I can't stand Bubba and fear his wife, their daughter seems to have some semblance of class.
One of Gore's sons got kicked out of his school for marijuana use though, and the media never raised an eyebrow.
And I don't think they should've, but it's a sick double-standard of the, yes, liberal media.
2001-10-12 09:41:31 AM  
Gores daughters are hotter. Therefore he should be pres.
2001-10-12 09:47:10 AM  
Duh!!! She did not get "Let off the hook"! Did you not read that she did community service, and paid a fine??????
2001-10-12 09:51:47 AM  
"Gores daughters are hotter. Therefore he should be pres."

Hmm. . . it's tough to argue with that logic. Good point SiNaKaL.
2001-10-12 10:08:16 AM  
Should be [image from too old to be available]
2001-10-12 10:15:51 AM  
Jenna can come over my place for margaritas any time she wants. Hell, she can even bring her Dad as long as he stays in the other room.
2001-10-12 10:17:32 AM  
Hotter? Yes. But definitely squarer. Look but don't touch until you have spend $3000 and dated them for months or, bit rougher but puts out after a few drinks? Jenna, buckle up...
2001-10-12 10:22:03 AM  
Usually teens are not arrested for trying to buy a drink.

When I was underage the cops would find beer on somebody and make them pour it all out. No charges were filed.
2001-10-12 10:41:50 AM  
This is just a HUGE surprise! I agree with Clanjade. Clinton did a lot of great things while in office that went unrecognized because too many bored people were stuck on his eccentricity. He deserved a blowjob. Come to think of it, so do I. Maybe I should offer Jenna Bush a bacardi & coke.
2001-10-12 11:17:09 AM  
Before the secret service agents were told to back off and give her some slack to enjoy college life.
I bet right now they are controlling every move she makes.
No more partys for Jenna..
2001-10-12 11:22:31 AM  
I don't know Snip, I'm on a college campus and I've had a few friends get taken to the station, but that was because they were already drunk I guess.

About Jenna getting off, fair enough. That's what most drinking offenders do, get off with probation and community service. Noone goes to jail for it, it's a misdemeanor.
2001-10-12 12:36:24 PM  
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Hauled into court like common salt
Some people say my daddy's a frontman for the military industrial petrochemical multinational trilateral complex...
But I know, thanks to him, I"ll walk
It wasn't my fault
2001-10-12 12:45:32 PM  
(1) It seems Jenna got the same punishment as other underage drinkers. (2) The owner of Chuy's called 911 as well IIRC. Since when was underage drinking a 911 issue?? (3) I have heard Chelsea got busted for underage drinking at Stanford but it was on-campus and therefore easier to deal with. (4) I've always found the Gore daughters unattractive. (5) I like Barbara better than Jenna. (6) I wonder if anyone knows how Corinne Quayle turned out. She had potential.
2001-10-12 01:03:02 PM  
Corinne Quayle became a crack whore and stated a fledgling adult entertainment career. You can catch her in "My dad's dumb, so I farked the garbage man to raise my IQ"
2001-10-12 01:18:57 PM  
it's still kinda funny that this prez who's all about cracking down on drugs and stripping students w/drug convictions of their educational funding has an underage daughter that seems to like drinking quite a bit. of course the media's going to jump all over it-- just like they jumped all over the "GWB is a cokehead" charges! People don't like anything that resembles hypocrisy or double-standards.
2001-10-12 01:21:22 PM  
Substrate The real reason the 3 strikes law doesn't apply is that these weren't felonies.
2001-10-12 01:29:34 PM  
I hope the next person that gets busted doing the exact same thing makes a big media fuss about how Bushy got his bratty kid off the hook.

Speaking of Bush, I.....[this message has been determined to be a threat to the security of the United States and has therefore been deleted]
2001-10-12 02:45:28 PM  
In Texas the third misdemeanor done on one crime makes you a felon. This law and the severe drinking law that Jenna was caught on was sponsored and signed by Dubya.

and you can bet there was some "pressure" exerted to see that poor Jenna has no chance of ever seeing the inside of a jail cell.
2001-10-12 03:00:19 PM  
Tsubaki, they do have three strikes and you're out in the United States. Her father was responsible for it in Texas. It won't apply to his daughters because a) They're the presidents little girl so charges will be dropped b) They're the presidents little girl so charges will be dropped.

I you are going to jag the President via his daughter at least get it right. Texas habitual criminal law requires 3 Felonies to be used. These were TABC Class C misdemeanors.
2001-10-12 03:20:38 PM  

I don't know about Jenna, but I know for a fact that her sister Barbara does puff. I have a friend who goes to Yale and lives the floor above her in the dorms. He's smoked the green with her often.

Oh yeah, and he says she's the snottiest, most elitist ho he's ever met.
2001-10-12 03:21:37 PM  
anyone have pics of Gore's daughters? Never seen them, but I think Bush's daughters are nice pieces of ass! Ow!
2001-10-12 05:00:01 PM  
Somehow I think they should just get cards that say they are exempt and can buy booze. shiat if Bush were my dad I would need to get drunk a lot too.
2001-10-12 07:22:38 PM  
Oh big farkin' deal. She's not any different from most people her age, but because she's GW's daughter everyone acts like she commited blasphemy or something. Give the girl a farkin' break and sneak her a big ass margarita on the sly.
