A freak of nature...

Is he just an innocuous lunatic or does he pose a threat for the law and order in Polish politics? Today Janusz Palikot claims that the IPN portfolio of Law and Justice President should be thoroughly probed into, adding it may include discrediting materials. Nothing but the next episode of political war played out by big boys hitting one another with their toys. However, doesn’t it sound dubiously, especially in the mouth of keen advocate of vetting (lustracja), when he says all the portfolios are trustworthy, only the one of him is trumped-up? Poles are masters of relativism, Mr. Kaczyński is thus an embodiment of one of our worst national features (not only this one). No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time (Winston Churchill). In our democracy there’s enough room for both Palikot and the likes of him and small men like Kaczyński and his henchmen.
