Rachel Maddow takes Mark Penn, Lanny Davis, Bob Barr and Rudy Giuliani to task for being willing to sell their domestic political clout in order to line their pockets doing PR work for some, as she calls it, "Scuzzy Dictators".

First up, we have Mark Penn and his work at Burson-Marsteller -- Campaign '08 Update: Rachel Maddow Smacks Down Clinton Strategist Mark Penn & His Firm Burson-Marsteller.

Then we have former Rep. Bob Barr and his work for Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier -- ‘Libertarian’ Bob Barr To Be Former Haitian Dictator Duvalier’s ‘International Voice’.

Next up Lanny Davis, as though Democrats didn't already have enough reasons to despise this guy -- Lobbyist’s Client List Puts Him on the Defensive.

And last but not least, Mr. A-Noun-A-Verb-And-9-11, former New York Major Rudy Giuliani -- Giuliani's Clients Could Pose Conflict.
