Pre-Jan. 19 Obama: Scott Brown is an ogre. Post-Jan. 19 Obama: Hey, Scott Brown’s just like me!

Yep, that was the spin out of White House press secretary Robert Gibbs’ mouth this afternoon.

Just a few short days ago, President Obama was up in Massachusetts mocking Brown’s truck and casting him as a fat-cat crony of Wall Street.

Today? Gibbs asserted with a straight face that the same kind of “anger” that brought Obama into office also buoyed Brown’s candidacy.

See? Brown’s voters are just like Obama’s. Brown’s win is Obama’s win. Black is white. Up is down. Ignorance equals strength.

Oh, yeah: And elections have consequences.
