Nick Clegg’s rise to prominence is eerily similar that of the empty suit Obama, with Clegg copying Obama literally in deed and in word. All talk, no substance. But the U.K. is swooning.

Like our Dear Leader, Clegg’s dossier-version of the teleprompter tells him exactly what do. Except I bet he wishes his aide put it in his pocket and walked to the hotel, thus saving him a carbon footprint. Instead, it was left in a cab for all to see.

Transparency is a beautiful thing. Hopefully the Brits will see the truth before it’s too late.
