How many "is"s do we need!?

Heard on WBER this morning:

"...the thing is is is that..."

And no, he wasn't stuttering.

One "is" is correct for that phrase. Two "is"s is used way too often and it annoys and distracts me anytime I hear it, but sadly I'm usually the only one who DOES hear it. Three "is"s should get one arrested for language abuse.
