Sincerely speaking — Forgive us for doubting House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) when he says he only wants to help President Obama. This is how he explained his chiding of Obama for critiquing the GOP over student loans: “The president’s bigger than this,” he said, according to our colleague Joel Achenbach. “Somebody needs to help him out, so I thought I would.”

Dinner leftovers — For those who can’t get enough, there’s more dish from the White House Correspondent’s Dinner: The Reliable Source tracked the celebs; here’s a video of President Obama’s stand-up act; there’s a red-carpet photo gallery to check out; and (natch) the Fix captured the night in tweets.

About that flowerpot — And Watergate’s still making news. A new book chronicles doubts about some of the most iconic details of Bob Woodward’s reporting on the scandal, our colleague Joel Achenbach reports.
