Last week, Yahoo News beclowned themselves trying to dismiss Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie’s emphasis on MS-13 as racist and xenophobic. Today, Washington Post Fact Checker columnist Glenn Kessler is doing his part to make Gillespie look like he’s making an MS-13 mountain out of a molehill:

How much lower?

Yes, 1,400 is less than 2,000. But 1,400 violent, murderous thugs is still a lot more than most people would be comfortable with.

How “extraordinarily safe” is it to have 1,400 MS-13 members running around?

Oh. Even better.

Small? Are Fairfax County residents supposed to be comforted by this?

We’ll wait.
