If so, why? Do you wish you didn’t hate him or her? Do you think your feeling of hatred of this person is entirely under your volition, or is it something you seek to change?
Please note the qualifiers. Persons you know only online (say through this message board) don’t count; nor do public figures you have never met, no matter how odious. And yes, that includes Glenn Beck AND Michael Moore.
Answering my own question…I hate my stepdaughter’s biological father. Only he’s more of a sperm donor, as he has never shown the slightest interest in being anything other than a jackass to her. Part of the reason I hate him is that I love her, and, despite being an adult, she is still covetous of his affection and sensitive to his disapprobation. But I also hate him because he’s pretty much the same guy now that I was in my twenties. He’s the incarnation of the part of me I despise, and he reminds me of that part of my past whenever I see or hear about him.
