Midterm elections are upon us and of course CNN
has new technology to deliver every result, after the holograms
and multitouch display madness (lampooned brilliantly by Saturday Night Live
) of 2008

style. We can't imagine life without the yellow first down marker during football games, but watching anchors play hide-and-seek behind bar graphs is either taking things a step too far, or just the thing help us stay interested in politics a little longer.
