McCain beats Obama in race of hissing cockroaches
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- This presidential race was no contest: John McCain sped to the finish while Barack Obama was reluctant to leave the starting point.
But there's no guarantee giant Madagascar hissing cockroaches will predict the real result in November.
The roach race Thursday was part of the New Jersey Pest Management Association's annual clinic and trade show.
Organizers liken the race's prediction success to that of Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day.
Association executive director Leonard Douglen says the 2000 roach race came close. The Gore roach won by an antenna, hanging chads not included.
