It makes a hell of a lot more sense than cutting something with the wind by doing nothing more than swinging a fan. Or getting hit by a fireball and just being pushed back. Or being electrocuted internally by a Chidori but not showing any adverse effects. Or the fact that Naruto's Needle Grenade is the most powerful and deadly technique ever shown in this story next to Kakashi's eye-space-destruction ability.
Creating lightning with bare hands, and using that lighting to "shock" someone else, while not getting electrocuted doesn't make much sense to me to begin with!
