TABLOID HEADLINE: Purplebeard’s Acid Tongue

In Over 9000, Purplebeard said:

I pointed this out to nqeron after I had asked them to vote AGAINST on Right Field, so that I could enact it before anyone could respond. They declined, thus denying me my boyhood dream of enacting a failing proposal. :(

Does he think that the voters are mere rubes? Does he think that they have forgotten that, in Reforming Politics, he said:

Everyone knows you can’t reach a solution without dissolving something.

You made a commitment, Purplebeard, to the country and your constituents, to solve every problem that beset you during your term in office by dousing it with acid. You may think that we have short memories, sir, but we do not. When nqeron denied you your dream of enacting a failing proposal, one might have expected that you would reach for the H2SO4 and burned some of those troublesome AGAINST votes away, but as is so often the case with these Communists, their fancy pledges stand for nothing when exposed to the tough action of real government.

Amusing though it is, this action is illegal per “Numbers and Variables” since it would set my Credibility below zero.

“This action” referring to the ‘reducing my Credibility by 6’ bit. This tabloid headline is otherwise legal, and the statements cited are now no longer Commitments.

Yeah. It’s definitely taken a turn for the exciting. I was worried for a while there.

Blood in the water seems to be good for getting peoples’ more aggressive instincts up.
