You know Jeb Bush must be a serious contender for president when:
1) Mud is slung that he had a separate email account while governor of Florida (Rush was right, he is just like Hillary!). b.) He's coming to Newport Beach next week to scoop up campaign cash.
I mean, why make the trip otherwise since it's so pleasant back east and simply unbearable here? (Our overnight temperature just dropped to 60 the other night!)
Bush--can we please start calling him Jebya?-- will lead a $25,000-per-couple "reception and discussion" at Newport Beach's Pacific Club on Monday, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. I don't know about you, but for $25,000 I expect there to be damn fine coffee--and keep it pouring!

That's the same amount being solicited for a Tuesday night--as in next Tuesday night--reception at the Bel Air home of Robert Tuttle of Tuttle-Click car lot fame. Oh yeah, he was also an ambassador to the Court of St. James in the Dubya administration.
Actually, $25k is the per-couple "minimum" the Right to Rise Super PAC is collecting in Bel Air. Those who wish to stick around for dinner are being asked to fork over $100,000 per couple. I don't know about you, but for $100,000 I expect there to be hot dinner rolls--and keep 'em coming!
Although Jebya oughta avoid 'em if he wants to get in campaign fighting shape.
