I'd hoped BitAnd would work on Boolean Lists so I gave it a try.  If it had simply failed completely I'd be disappointed but would understand.  But oddly, it half succeeds.  Why? BitOr fails the same way, and BitNot always fails.

I just want to understand these results.  I know there are ways to get the output I want.

In[77]:= BooleanTable[{p,q,BitAnd[p,q]},{p,q}]//TableForm
True	True	True
True	False	BitAnd[False,True]
False	True	BitAnd[False,True]
False	False	False
