Liberal Retreads

In typical liberal fashion, the United Autoworkers staged a protest outside Ford Motor Company's headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan on Friday. What struck me most about the Reuters article describing this event was the following:
"Police in Dearborn, the Detroit suburb from which Ford runs its global operations, estimated that as many as 600 members of the United Auto Workers (news - web sites) union braved bone-chilling, 12-degree (Fahrenheit) temperatures to join in the protest.It was the first in recent memory to put disgruntled members of the UAW on the doorstep of 'The Glass House,' as Ford's headquarters is known.
Led by union activists with bullhorns, they chanted slogans like 'hey, hey, ho, ho -- we want jobs not Mexico' and 'No Lincolns built in Mexico -- hell no!' "

The libs have used that stupid "hey, hey, ho, ho" thing for at least the last 20 years. Can't they come up with something more original (and somewhat less childish) than that? Or does this mean that they only champion causes that can be rhymed with "ho, ho"? For that matter, what's Santa got to do with it anyway?
