Now, panel, who will finally swoop in and save the GOP? Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Giselle Bundchen, who will say to the Republicans, "my husband can't throw the ball and win the election at the same time."



SAGAL: Tom Bodett?

TOM BODETT: We're going to need one part Newt Gingrich, one part Rudy Giuliani, one part Arnold Schwarzenegger - we're talking Vladmir Putin.


SAGAL: And Roxanne Roberts?

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Jeb Bush, who legally changed his name last week to "Jeb Jesus Reagan Lincoln."


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


SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Paula Poundstone, Tom Bodett, Roxanne Roberts. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week, Salt Lake City, be there.
