One of the highlights of this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner was the House of Cards spoof that opened the evening, which brought the popular fictional D.C. to real life D.C., and now you can watch it too. The video featured Kevin Spacey in character as Congressman Francis Underwood trying to control the dinner. It opens with Underwood trying to bargain with president of the White House Correspondents Association, Fox News' Ed Henry, has cameos from Valerie Jarrett, John McCain, Mike Allen, Charlie Rose, and more, and concludes with a monologue from Underwood in tux: "I may lie, cheat and intimidate to get what I want, but at least I get the job done. So I hope some of you were taking notes."
