A Light-Hearted Political Aside

Oregon State Legislator Jefferson Smith is willing to play the long game for a good joke. He orchestrated a light-hearted political prank that took more than a year to come to fruition, but oh, how sweet it was when it was all assembled.

This video of members of the Oregon State Legislature reading pieces of Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up on the House floor has been circling the rounds of the political geeks of the world for a while now, but it never stops being funny to me. Of course, when even politicians are in on the joke, it’s probably a sign that rick rolling has jumped the shark.
