Flickr Politics: Scott Brown Edition

Pete Souza/White House

Pete Souza/White House

With mid-terms in mind, one thing the White House is doing with the latest Flickr batch is further toning down the January 2010 victory and reducing the star power of GOP insurgent and Obama-upstaging stud, Scott Brown, by simultaneously playing him off against the staid, timeless and utterly substantial background of the Oval Office and also against the just-as-charismatic Mr. Obama.

Dude, just sit there and listen.

Update 7/12: And the dividends are apparently paying off with Brown clearing the way for passage of banking reform (such as it is).
