“It’s a shame he wasn’t in charge of building the roads in Jerusalem in the old days because then the Way of the Cross would probably have not been completed in time for Good Friday.”
—Michał Ogórek, satirist, on Infrastructure Minister Sławomir Nowak

“Speaker, this drug-crazed rabble is not going to stop me from carrying on.”
—Leszek Miller, former prime minister, after deputies from the socially ultraliberal Palikot Movement—a group calling for the legalization of soft drugs— attempted to disrupt his statement in parliament focusing on foreign policy issues

“Before the great national awakening when Polish cardinal Karol Wojtyła was elected pope, soccer was a powerful factor that brought the nation together.”
—Marek Jurek, leader of the conservative Right Wing of the Republic, and an avid soccer fan

“You are nothing but political heretics and would covert to Islam if that meant you’d get a government subsidy.”
—Artur Dębski, a deputy with the Palikot Movement, addressing politicians from the governing Civic Platform, in a debate about the Movement’s (eventually defeated) proposal to have political parties financed from a 1-percent tax donation instead of directly from public coffers
