Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Political pests

Lost somewhere in all the Biden news was a very positive story for the

McCain camp. A Madagascar cockroach representing McCain beat an Obama roach

in a race in New Jersey last week.

Our favorite part is when the reporter says "voters aren't worried about the outcome." We're envision an Obama support who be worried about this: "Oh no, this doesn't bode well at all! I thought this was his year. Guess we'll now have to start breeding some thoroughbred roaches for 2012."

Then again, using a cockroach race to determine an election doesn't seem

THAT much sillier than the electoral college system.
