We regularly post segments from Countdown, and normally they deal with serious issues such as FISA, GOP hackery, McCain's flip-floppery and such, but the #1 story on Wednesday's show provided some much needed comic relief that was too good to pass up.

President Bush is always good for plenty of unintended humor, and recently he's been serving up some of his best stinkers to date. VH-1's Christian Finnegan joined Keith Olbermann to talk about Bush's recent awkward moment with Filipino President Gloria Arroyo, the initiative in San Francisco to name a sewage treatment plant after him and an absolutely hilarious video of the president stepping off of his helicopter last Friday in North Carolina, waving desperately at two men (pictured above right) trying to get their attention -- but, to no avail.

Finnegan: "What you can't hear is that the two men in the clips are actually saying -- don't look, don't look, don't look, don't -- awww, I think he saw us. How do you go from being leader of the free world to the guy who THINKS he's invited to your birthday party? You know, like hey, who invited President Bush and why is he playing a Toby Keith cd?"

Can you help us out?
