Does Achashverosh deserve the royal throne?
He claims that he's all about hard work and careful spending, BUT he just spent the last 180 days throwing a lavish party for all of Persia's already-overpaid government officials!
He claims he's pro-family values--that he believes "Every man should be the ruler in his own house"--BUT he recently held a week-long drunken stag party where he asked his wife to be the central attraction! THEN he banished her when she refused, and is holding a beauty pageant to pick his next wife!
Achashverosh. Can we trust him? Probably not, but what choice do we have? He's the king.
"I'm King Ach-- Achashi-- I'm King Xerxes, and I, hic, approve this--massage."
