Insert Olsen joke here

Posted by in: Poland, Political issues

I haven’t been paying enough attention. Somehow I missed, until today, the fact that Poland’s two top political jobs (President and Prime Minister) were going to be filled by a pair of identical twins. Yes. Let your inner third-rate comedy script-doctor chew on that for a while.

And indeed, they were child stars! They became famous as kids by starring in exactly the kind of movie this scenario brings to mind. Schemes. Hijinks. Capers. Then they rose gradually to political power.

It now transpires that one of the brothers has stepped aside from the top job — because the citizenry (have been educated by movies to) expect that twins in power would lead to schemes and capers. I love it.
