Our panelists predict: If Barack Obama decided to drop Joe Biden, who he would he pick to replace him?

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, if President Obama dumps Joe Biden, because of all those gaffes, who will he with replace him with and why? Faith Salie?

FAITH SALIE: In an attempt to sweep the youth vote, the lady vote and the gay vote, Obama will unveil his own Ryan plan. His VP pick will be a shirtless Ryan Gosling.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: From Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Steve Fauntleroy. He was vice president of my sixth grade class.

(LAUGHTER)

POUNDSTONE: And never had one gaffe.

SAGAL: And Luke Burbank?

LUKE BURBANK: Legendary anchorman Bill Kurtis, because seriously, have you heard that frigging voice?

(SOUNDBITE OF CHEERING)

BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of those people replace Joe Biden, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis, for making us sound more important than we are.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks also to Paula Poundstone, Faith Salie and Luke Burbank. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal, and we'll be back with you next week.
