Fresh from his vacation with Mickey and Minnie, CNBC's Rick Santelli is back and mind-blown at the total cognitive dissonance of the fact that we just broke through $16tn debt. The relaxed Chicagoan summarizes, in words and tables that any Disney-princess-loving 6 year old girl could comprehend, why "a trillion is a big number" and while not dissing the first lady's speech, he notes that unlike her "money's not important to Barack" comment, when the number gets this big, it better matter to someone.
