A White House spokesman today encouraged conservatives attending Grover Norquist's weekly conclave to support the bailout.  How was it received?

As one fellow who attended emailed me:  
"Let's just say the crowd was polite but not buying it."

... Almost exactly three years ago, Marc Ambinder wrote this:

"WH nominee mgr. Ed Gillespie faced a grilling from conservative movement leaders this a.m. at Grover Norquist's Wednesday meeting in DC over Harriet Miers."
Well, sounds like nobody was grilled today, but otherwise, it's deja vu ...
