This weekend, Daily Intel took a field trip down to Washington, D.C., for the White House Correspondents’ dinner, where we did the important work of trying to get celebrities to talk about politics, and political figures to talk about celebrities. We learned some special facts about Ray Kelly’s DVR, Valerie Jarret’s inbox, and Omar Epps’s dream running mate. Below, a slideshow of the most memorable quotes from the weekend, gathered from a slew of events surrounding the dinner itself, including pre-event cocktail parties hosted by The New Yorker, Time/People, and Google/The Hollywood Reporter; a brunch hosted by Tammy Haddad, Hillary Rosen, and a slew of other D.C. insiders; and post-dinner parties given by Bloomberg/Vanity Fair and MSNBC.
