In the event you don't have anything to do today -- or are just too hungover to pull yourself up from your bed or your sofa, like me presently -- there are worst ways to spend a day of leisure than by watching the speeches Jimmy Kimmel and President Obama delivered last night at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
