John McCain is a cockroach. A giant Madagascar hissing cockroach, in fact. So is Barack Obama.

Those were the names given to two racing roaches Thursday at the New Jersey Pest Management Association's annual conference in New Brunswick. The roaches were put into a six-foot-long racetrack and turned loose.

"McCain" finished the course in less than five seconds, while "Obama" seemed reluctant to leave the starting gate.

No word on whom the roaches were picking for their running mates.
