MSNBC's Chris Matthews engaged in a psychological analysis of Sarah Palin's appeal to conservatives during his show Wednesday

"This is a bit psychobabble, but don't you think part of the appeal Sarah Palin is she doesn't give a rat's butt what the facts are? And I think that is her wild attraction," Matthews asserted during his show during a conversation with the Huffington Post's Sam Stein.

The pair was discussing her role in the health care debate, such as frequently referring to "death panels" in Obamacare.

"She's almost squirrely that way in a sense that she's willing to say wild things that you and I will say, 'wait, that's not true'," Matthews added.

"She'll just come back and say, 'Well,' that's being technical or you're just dealing with facts there.'"
