S.C. Congressmen take on 'House of Cards' ahead of season 2 premiere

Hilton Head Island PacketFebruary 13, 2014 

Netflix's hit drama series "House of Cards" returns for its second season Friday, and some South Carolina Congressmen are just as excited as the rest of us.

In a NowThisNews video, four S.C. lawmakers read lines from Frank Underwood, the show's deliciously diabolical politician from Gaffney.

Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-Columbia, looks at the camera and deadpans "I have no patience for useless things."

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-Spartanburg, narrows his eyes into a steely squint and says "I have zero tolerance for betrayal."

Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-Laurens, slams down some papers and says, "That's how you devour a whale, Doug. One bite at a time."

There's also U.S. Sen, Tim Scott, R-North Charleston, and two non-S.C. politicians, Rep. Donna Edwards and Rep. Kevin McCarthy. It's not exactly Kevin Spacey-esque, but we love it anyway. (But not more than sharks love blood. Hehe.)
