Pet peeve

I really, really hate it when people are trying to say "for all intents and purposes" and instead say something like "for all-intensive purposes," as Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., recently did.

It bugs me when they screw up other idioms, too, but I can't think of any typical ones right now. This one will have to suffice.
