"It is what it is" sounds a lot like one of those empty responses we give (or get) when one party in a conversation is uninterested in actually talking. I relate it to my pet peeve "it's going" as an answer (a non-answer, really) to "How's it going?" or How are you? Fine. They are simply socially acceptable silence fillers: a way to fool ourselves and others that we are being cordial.
