Achashverosh has almost no agency in Megillah. He basically walks around signing whatever anyone tells him to sign and making edicts out of anger. Was he totally schnockered from the half year of drunken debauchery that preceded Ester's reign (or from another such bash)? Are there any traditional sources that talk about this?

Not Purim Torah but inspired by this comment.
