Insipid phrases (1st in a continuing series)

"It is what it is."

Google search: "about" 1,180,000 hits

Voted #1 cliche of 2004 in USA Today

I know a photographer that says this all of the time!

But doesn't that depend on what the definition of "is" is?

Insipid and tautological. I suppose these two go hand in hand.

I love your blog. I am a San Franciscan who's come to love Texas over the past couple years. (Though I have never been to your part of the state.)

Thanks for blogrolling my blog, Mr. Jones.
