Even Shrub is being pushed up against the wall by the dominionist monster he's courted...

Pretty much a veritable who's who of the dominionist groups have told Shrub they don't like Gonzales, not one little bit...apparently the argument is that he isn't a "good dominionist", in that he's voted occasionally for protecting reproductive rights and affirmative action (neither of which are terribly popular with dominionists for obvious reasons). They want a flat out dominionist/Christian Reconstructionist or nothing; in fact...

...quite a few dominionist groups are even flat out calling for disbarred judge Roy Moore (yes, the Christian Reconstructionist idiot who does talks at "white citizen's councils", got himself disbarred by his fellow justices in what is possibly one of the two states of the union closest to being a dominionist theocracy *de facto* as is for being too much of a dominionist asshat even for *them*, and is the golden boy of the Christian Supremacists) to be nominated. And the dominionists are pretty damned determined to get what they want...


...even going so far as to state that not only are they going to go actively *against* him should he nominate Alberto Gonzales as a Supreme Court Justice candidate, but they're going to go after his little brother Jeb too:

"If the president is foolish enough to nominate Al Gonzales, what he
will find is a divided base that will take it out on candidates in
2006," said Manuel Miranda, who heads a coalition of conservative
groups called Third Branch Conference. A former legal counsel to Senate
Majority Leader Bill Frist, Miranda went on to threaten retribution
against First Brother, should he decide to run for president. "We're
not Republican patsies," he said. "Jeb Bush can go sell insurance."

Now, this puts Shrub in a bit of a quandry:


...as, well, Shrub apparently likes Gonzales, considers him a good friend at that. Most media sources say Gonzales is his likely pick.

Well, apparently the issue of whether Shrub likes dominionists more than people he knows got answered:

(Little is known about him, but what little is known indicates he tends to be friendly towards dominionist causes)
