Todd Akin says Politico didn't let him say all the stuff he wanted to say about rape.

The Palestinian Envoy to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva tells Palestinian Authority TV that the PA needs to be prudent about appeals to the Human Rights Council because every Hamas rocket - fired indiscriminately and without warning into civilian areas - constitutes a "crime against humanity." He also notes reports from Gaza about how the IDF is sending advance evacuation warnings before bombing attacks. This candor will and is being seized on by supporters of Israel. But it's just as much as rebuke to the rejectionist right in Israel who claim there's no partner for peace among the Palestinians.

There's a path to end all of this. Not just this flare-up but the whole conflict. It's there. It just needs to be taken.

We're coming up on the finish line in our 6 week Prime membership drive. We need just 44 7 more signups to get to our final goal of 2000 new members. Just think you can end these membership drive posts! It's only 44 7 signups away! Seriously, though, this is very important for TPM. Join us. Click right here.

TPM is hiring a Features Editor who will work out of our New York City office. This is not just a new opening. It's an entirely new position, one of we've never had before. So we're very excited about the hire and very focused on finding just the right person.

Almost all of our news staff - editors and reporters - is focused on the kind of rapid-fire, iterative coverage of politics and news you know us for. We've created this new position to focus entirely on new areas we're expanding into - opinion, features, longform articles, most of which of which will come from outside contributors. That means the time pace and the range of topics the Features Editor will work on will be significantly different from the rest of our editorial staff. This is an exciting an opportunity to help us expand TPM in a challenging, fruitful new direction.

See our listing after the jump.
