Ah here, Hath not an RTE presenter eyes? Hath not an RTE presenter hands, organs,
dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with
the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject
to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means,
warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer
as an ordinary person is? If you prick us, do we not bleed Daily Mail opinions?
If you pay us well over the odds, do we not laugh? If you poisson us,
do we not recommned a fine white? And if you wrong us, shall we not go to work for the, er, opposition?
