Tautological Reasoning

Wikipedia defines tautological reasoning as:

“repetition of meaning, using dissimilar words to say the same thing twice, especially where the additional words fails to provide additional clarity and meaning”

Matthew provided an excellent example on the drive yesterday.

“Mommy, Delaware is where Delaware is.”

You can hardly argue with that.
