US National Debt Clock Runs Out of Space

From AIG and Wachovia to WaMu, we all knew that the economy is in bad shape. But you know things with the economy are going really really bad when the national debt clock maxes out and requires being replaced with a bigger one to accommodate the increasing debt.
