'Kerry' Crushes 'Bush' In Cockroach Derby

POSTED: 7:20 AM EDT August 20, 2004

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- "John Kerry" crushed "George Bush" like a bug at the annual cockroach derby in New Brunswick.

Thursday's event was hosted by the New Jersey Pest Management Association.

Organizers said the event has an 80 percent accuracy rate in determining the winners of the election.

Madagascar giant hissing cockroaches that represented the Massachusetts Democrat and the Republican incumbent didn't move when the race started.

But with a little prodding, the "Kerry" roach sprinted down a 6-foot tube while the "Bush" roach never moved any of its six legs.
