    I love the White House Correspondents Dinner. I love it. So I set it to record tonight on MSNBC beginning at 7pm. After the NASCAR race ended (my least favorite driver won -- I should've known something was up) I went to play the Dinner and the President had already started! Apparently the monologues started early... or, as has been the case frequently with Rachel's show, the people in charge at MSNBC don't understand how time operates.

    Thank God for CSPAN.

    I really hate the fact that the White House press corps adheres to traditional journalistic schedules... I like the President. But does he REALLY have to interrupt The Young & The Restless with such consistency???

    He should have more respect for Genoa City.

    I'm going to try to embed this...the one Kirk posted left out a few of the President's jokes at the beginning.

    I thought Jimmy Kemmel did ok...I'm not a huge fan of Jimmy Kemmel ordinarily, so perhaps I am not the best judge. But, he didn't seem to have very good timing (I assume he was nervous and rushing because he failed to pause at all for laughter) and the order of some of his jokes was a little strange. Also, it seemed that he was up there for a substantially shorter amount of time than Seth Meyer was last year and others I'd seen in the past, not sure if that was by design or if he was simply rushing and finished early.

    Washington (CNN) -- The Secret Service agent at the center of the Colombia prostitution scandal has been identified as Arthur Huntington, sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN on Friday.

    According to the sources, Huntington was the agent in a seventh-floor hotel room in Cartagena who had a dispute over pay with an escort.

    CNN also learned that Huntington has left the Secret Service, but it was not clear under what circumstances, according to CNN's Drew Griffin.

    According to sources, the alleged prostitutes -- the youngest of whom were in their early 20s -- signed in at Hotel Caribe.

    One of these women, Dania Suarez, allegedly was later involved in a dispute about how much she was to be paid for the night, which brought the entire incident to light. Suarez, 24, through a statement credited to her attorney, said she was an escort, not a prostitute.

    At least three agents assigned to rooms on the seventh floor left Cartagena early, according to hotel records. Two agents have been cleared to return to work, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.

    Monday, a man who identified himself as Arthur Huntington declined comment to a CNN producer. Thursday, someone at his residence closed the door and made no comment. No one answered the door Friday or responded to phone calls. The residence was just listed for sale this week.

    Huntington, 41, is married and the father of two boys, according to neighbors.

    A woman who identified herself as a family friend called the situation "heartbreaking."

    "I know him and his character," she said of Huntington. "I would question the allegations."

    Also Friday, the Secret Service distributed new rules for its agents on assignment intended to prevent a repeat of such alleged misconduct, according to two government sources familiar with the resulting investigation.

    Kimmel was totally rushing it! President Obama had better timing.

    I'll reserve "judgment", but this made me chuckle.

    It was bad enough when he insisted on interrupting The Young and the Restless. Now he has to interrupt Judge Judy? The man simply has no respect.

    Occupy protests have very quickly gotten violent here. Mayor McGinn has declared a state of emergency.

    I live close-ish to downtown, far enough away from the action, but I can hear a lot of police activity in the distance. I want to go down and take pictures, but Craig won't let me.

    May Day protestors have flooded downtown Seattle streets, some openly shattering windows, firing paintballs, setting fires and blocking traffic.
