Despite Everything

No matter whether you totally disagree with somebody's opinions, are annoyed that they give your whole country a bad rep and you always have to defend your own political sanity, find their rhetoric toe-nail-curlingly horrible - you certainly don't wish them a premature and cruel death.

It's like that guy who was famous for the most irritating commercials ever on Austrian TV. He probably had as many enemies in the economic arena as Haider did in the political. Every night, we switched channels when he came on and yet it was a shock when he died of cancer at the age of 56, letting his son continue in a similarly irritating manner.

Perhaps the punishment for making so many foes in your lifetime is their hypocritical obituaries upon your death. Then again, they hardly hurt you as much as your bereaved.
