'"We went through it thoroughly yesterday," said Scott McClellan, the White House press secretary, somewhat testily after being badgered recently about the Cheney hunting accident. "It is what it is, and I think it's time to move on."

"I made a mistake," said the pop icon Britney Spears, who was photographed driving with her baby son on her lap instead of strapped in a seat, "and so it is what it is, I guess."

it is what it is merely means as the poster of this blog stated (we can't change that but we will move forward anyway). It is not new maybe the manner u here it has changed but it is as it has always been. An expression expressing submission and acceptance pass on through it. C'est fin.
