In this episode of the Wait Wait… James Carville is a Democratic political consultant, a TV pundit, and one half of the most famous mixed marriage in the country — his wife is Republican consultant Mary Matalin.

We’ve invited him to play a game called “You’re like two peas in a pod!” Three questions about freakishly similar couples.

Listen to the Story

PETER SAGAL, HOST: And now the game where those who are successful at something important try not to fail at something stupid.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: James Carville is a political consultant, a TV pundit, and one half of the most famous mixed marriage in the country along with Republican consultant Mary Matalin. He is a proud graduate of LSU here in Baton Rouge…

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: And we are pleased to have him here. James Carville, welcome to WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME!

JAMES CARVILLE: (Unintelligible).

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: So this whole ragin’ Cajun thing you’ve got going, not an act. You’re from around here, right?

CARVILLE: Yeah. Well, my mother is from Avoyelles Parish, which is famous because the sheriff once spent time in his own jail.

SAGAL: Did he really?

(LAUGHTER)

(SOUNDBITE OF CHEERING)
