Our panelists predict what the bad joke will be at next year's State of the Union.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what will that bad presidential joke be? Brian Babylon?

BRIAN BABYLON: Next year, the bad joke will actually come from John Boehner when he gooses Obama.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Roxanne Roberts?

ROXANNE ROBERTS: The president will show up wearing this t-shirt: I spent 100 million dollars to get elected and all I got is this stupid Congress.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: And Peter Grosz?

PETER GROSZ: The joke will be on all of us when a four-hour rambling, self-aggrandizing diatribe of a State of the Union will be delivered by President Newt Gingrich.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL: Well, if the president says any of those things, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Brian Babylon, Roxanne Roberts and Peter Grosz.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We will see you next week. We will.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
