(Newser) – Kevin Spacey has surveyed his acclaimed politics drama, House of Cards, and finds it no more wacky than Washington, DC. "Look, for me, it's like performance art," he tells ABC today. "We can get done shooting on a day, and I'll come home and turn on the news and think: 'You know, our storylines are not that crazy, they're really not.'" There are a few differences, he notes: "Some people feel that 99% of the show is accurate, and that the 1% that isn't is that you could never get an education bill passed that quickly. It must be really interesting for not just the American public but people around the world to view a very effective Congress that gets things done." The newest season of House of Cards premiered Friday, notes Politico.
