Rice would be a grain, so I'm going to!

not paleo, but a better choice than wheat products if those are the only two options.

You say that rice is the better choice. Why choose at all? I'd just recommend skipping them both; not eating rice or wheat if you are trying to eat paleo style.

John, rice is better than wheat due to the lack of gluten, which can do some damage to the gut.

Brown rice would be much more paleo than white, polished rice.

No. Basically, grains/seeds that require cooking are generally not considered to be paleo. Paleolithic peoples did not have the means to prepare these foods before the development of cooking vessels. I'm not sure if it's because of glycemic load, anti-nutrients (phytates) binding minerals, or because of the net acid-producing effect, but Loren Cordain (Paleodiet) specifically mentions avoiding these grains and grain-like seeds. Could be all of the above.
