Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., pops up in the credits and as an off-screen character in Amazon's new original show, "Alpha House," a sitcom about four Republican senators set in a recognizable modern-day Senate. President Obama also appears in the credits, in which cast members such as John Goodman were digitally added to real photos.

The show satirizes talking filibusters, American flag lapel pins, super-PAC "coordination" and establishment lawmakers getting Tea Party primaried.
