In early 2012, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh claimed that Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student who advocated for insurance coverage of contraceptives, "wants to be paid to have sex."

Political Science in America

Few academic disciplines have recorded their own origins and development in an organized way.
