key bindings

Still trying to get two spaces between periods and
sentences; trying another approach now using key
bindings. I've tried the following in my dotfile:

(global-set-key "." ".  ")

But, this does not work. I get the following error in
the mode-line:

After 0 kbd macro iterations: Variable binding depth
exceeds max-specpdl-size 

This is only a problem when I use the same character
in the new string that I am trying to set globally.
That is, if I used:

(global-set-key "p" ".  ") it works fine.

Any suggestion?
