Politics turned soap opera

TIME has started speculating about "Austrian Far-Right Leader Haider Outed in Death?"
Dear me, they're a bit slow, aren't they? However, the article is sort of fab if only because it made me laugh and laugh. It's sort of awesome to see Austria's newspapers and politics analyzed by an indifferent American journalist who seems slightly puzzled by all the dramarama and quotes Michael Fleischhaker: "Either he explains what was so special about his relationship with Haider, or he stops playing the role of successor and widow at the same time," blogged the editor of Austrian newspaper Die Presse, Michael Fleischhacker.
What isn't funny though is the link below the article which invited you to "click here for a photo gallery of Austria's house of horrors". It's not entertainment!
