Cartoonish election

Don’t let your kids watch these cartoons.

Schwarzenegger’s campaign Web site features a clip of two “union bosses” — with green alien-like skin — driving up to a school and turning a teacher upside down as change falls from her pockets.

“All right, boys, time to shake down another one,” a gravelly voice mutters.

Last week, the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights and the California Nurses Association put up its own cartoon with Schwarzenegger groping Minerva in the state seal.

With voters yawning over the special election, maybe it’ll take outlandish cartoons to wake up the electorate.

“How do you find a way to make something like the amount of money that gets spent in a campaign interesting?” said Schwarzenegger spokesman Todd Harris about his Web site’s animation.
