Roach Race Predicts McCain Victory in Fall
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
We can confidently predict that John McCain will win this fall's presidential election. Or rather, we can make that prediction confidently, provided we trust a cockroach. The New Jersey Pest Management Association held its annual trade show, and they staged a cockroach race to forecast the election. Really - they raced on a six-foot track.
(Soundbite of laughter)
The roach representing Senator Obama lost to a giant Madagascar hissing cockroach representing McCain.
