I've heard this idiocy slipping into the "panel discussions" on the news shows lately:

"The thing is is, ..."
 
We have a guy in our office who says this, and I want to deck him each time he says it. Only one "is" please, folks.
Hundreds of threads killed.

Funny you should mention this, ThreadKiller.  I've been ranting about this recently.  In fact, I pointed out to my son that he does it, as does his father.  I had to explain that "The thing is that it's redundant."  (Not "The thing is is, that it's redundant.")

[Note: I've posted this on the other thread, too, in response.]
