Spot is lazy?

According to Lee. And Spot pleads guilty as hell, he means as charged. Spotty got upbraided by Lee in a comment to his last post Sorry Lee, it's a stinker for being a lazy historian. Lee then cites a number of articles in support of his proposition that Article XIII, Section 2 of the Minnesota Constitution was passed to be mean to Catholics and should be stricken.

Yeah, Lee, Spot said he didn't accept your version of history, but more significantly, he said he didn't care. A couple of the simplest canons of constitutional and statutory construction render all of the gas baggery about the Blaine amendment inert. You cannot make words mean the opposite of what they say.
