Walking the Talk, Part I

Pet peeve # 447:

The original expression made sense: Do you walk the talk; that is to say, do your intentions mirror you words? Do your actions support your rhetoric?

From there it degenerated into a lazy "if you talk the talk, do you walk the walk?". And then, a meaningless "he walks the walk and talks the talk!"
