I'm not sure if everyone realizes this but one of the VP's main roles is being the Chairman of the Board of NASA. Sarah Palin as Chairman of NASA: "Ah gee, y'know . . . I ken see Space ferm here and ahh, I think I'm thu mos koalafide to run these types'ah organuhzations."

Rhyming biology and astrobiology doesn't seem very creative.
