Once again, Taiwan's NMA uses animation to clarify what's happening in the U.S. of A., and today they've released their breakdown of yesterday's Midterm Elections.

Overall, the Donkeys get a hefty spanking from the Elephants, and some high-profile, hotly-contested races get the CGI treatment. For California, Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown lock lightning bolts; Whitman, the losing candidate, gets some advice from the narrator: "Next time, maybe she should try looking on eBay."

Surf's up for Barbara Boxer, who hit the campaign waves against Carly Fiorina. The bikini-clad duo tussle on their boards; Boxer gets the hang ten, though, in the form of an almost ten percent lead for the win.
