Signals can directly kill a process.  Try SIGTERM to see this.  SIGINT is caught and handled by Python, which just happens to default to a graceful exit (unless stuck in a lib that prevents that.)  Try pasting your script into an interactive interpreter session and you'll see that it doesn't exit at all.
