8. Jane Hamsher is an idiot.
Kerry ran for President between 1989 and 2009. He got and gets most of his contributions from individuals not PAC, unlike a lot of other Senators. Since Hamsher mentioned Dorgan.

Kerry 2005 to 2009

Dorgan 2005 to 2009

Kerry has put significant reforms into this bill.
