Carville And Matalin On CNN: Back In Familiar Territory Couple Trade Barbs On TV

Married D.C. power couple James Carville and May Matalin returned to their bickering, if loving ways Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union with John King."

Just last week, Carville, a Democrat, and Matalin, a Republican, shared a moment after CNN aired a clip from Saturday Night Live mocking Carville.

The opposites-attract political consultants returned to more familiar territory Sunday and laid into one another after King asked the pair about a "vast right-wing conspiracy."

The pair weighed in, but then Carville accused his wife of simply repeating GOP talking points. Matalin responded and said her husband can't write--he can only talk

CARVILLE: We seem to have gone from the vast right-wing conspiracy to the vast right-wing talking points here.
MATALIN: I don't get the talking points like you do. Check, check, check.
KING: I thought he wrote the talking points.
MATALIN: He can't write. He can only talk.
