Hi Vincent-

I actually think Isaiah is mocking with the phrase here- uttering 
nonsense because Judah is being senseless.  So, if they won't accept his 
sensible word from Yahweh perhaps they will accept some senseless 
muttering.  I think the context too bears this out- and some of the 
commentators too go in this direction (as you have noted).  Others will 
doubtless disagree.

Best

Jim
