The Princess Bride and other fairy tales

Nye Gateway focuses on the latest Bush Administration power grab and pulls this quote:

The White House said the executive order was not meant to rein in any one agency. But business executives and consumer advocates said the administration was particularly concerned about rules and guidance issued by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Consumer advocates? Riiight! Notice how these concerned folks emphasize the two organizations that exist solely to protect the American people from unsrupulous businesses that have no interest in either protecting their workers or the environment. These two agencies have been in the crosshairs of the business sector for years. And now you are telling me that business executives are concerned? Heh. Not the way the rest of us are!! Concerned? In the words of Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
