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.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
