Former Politico reporter Reid Epstein just jumped to the Wall Street Journal but seems to have taken the worst of Politico's instincts with him. In an uncharacteristically bizarre WSJ piece, Epstein attempts to manufacture from thin air a political controversy for Republican Dave Brat, the GOP House candidate who shook up the media and GOP Establishment bubble Tuesday night with his stunning defeat of Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader.The title of Epstein's article is "David Brat’s Writings: Hitler’s Rise ‘Could All Happen Again’." The piece then opens with a non-sequitur connecting Brat's writing about Hitler and the fact that Cantor is Jewish:David Brat, the Virginia Republican who shocked House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) Tuesday, wrote in 2011 that Hitler’s rise “could all happen again, quite easily.”Mr. Brat’s remarks, in a 2011 issue of Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology, came three years before he defeated the only Jewish Republican in Congress.Epstein then attempts to convince people to turn their heads by writing about how his article will turn heads: "But it is the reference to Hitler’s Germany that is likely to turn heads during Mr. Brat’s first full day as a tea party star."Except that this is what Brat wrote about Hitler -- which you will be relieved to learn is anti-Hitler:
