CNN poked some fun at their regular political contributor James Carville by showing the skit Saturday Night Live did of him while he and his wife, GOP strategist Mary Matalin, were in the studio. SNL's Carville says he knows crazy because he looks in the mirror every morning thinks, "Yup, that's a good look. I mean, come on, I look like a skeletor!"

It's difficult to envision a happy marriage between Carville and Matalin considering pretty much every time you see them on television together they're bashing each others' ideas and parties. However, the couple shared a rare public, touchy-feely moment as Matalin defended her husband while stroking his chin:

I love that look. I've always loved that look. You're the most compelling, handsome manly-man. He looked like a girly-girl. You're my favorite skeletor.

A somewhat surprised John King declared, "It's ending on a soft, touchy moment."
