Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Shortly after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Olivia Bouler asked the National Audubon Society how her skill as an artist and her love of birds could be put to use. The fifth grader from Islip, N.Y., created a web page offering her vibrantly colored and lively paintings in exchange for donations. Five hundred of Bouler's watercolors of pelicans, warblers, buntings, and other North American birds were claimed within three weeks, and donors eventually contributed $200,000 to restoration efforts. Bouler was named the ASPCA's 2010 Kid of the Year for her efforts.

I am going to offer my doodles on E-Bay, the proceeds of which will go to convincing Palin and Hillary to do a nude spread for Over-50 Magazine.
Bet I make more than this kid did...

I have a better idea for a money maker: Threaten to do a Pelosi nude thread if folks don't send you $100. You'll quickly be a millionaire.
