The US Midterm Elections in Taiwanese Animation: Surf's Up for Boxer, Brown Zaps Whitman, Elephants Stomp Donkeys

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.
