'Pants on the Ground' Used in Political Attack

1/25/2010 5:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "Pants on the Ground" phenomenon has infiltrated the Canadian government -- where one member of the legislative assembly broke out in song to attack a member from a rival political party.

T.J.: Burke: Click to watch
It all went down Friday morning inside the New Brunswick Legislature -- when veteran politician T.J. Burke used "General" Larry Platt's theme song to explain how an opposition member had been caught with his "pants on the ground" during a recent radio interview.

Details aside -- it's just funny.

This is the best day of T.J. Burke's life. Is there any other way for a Canadian provincial legislator to get on TMZ? LOL I highly doubt it.

I'd be embarrassed to be Canadian after seeing that. Are all your Liberal politicians childish, attention seeking fools like this?

Too funny!
and "Canadian" maybe u should reconsider your name; Legislative Assembly equals provincial. He was talking to the leader of the official opposition of the prov. of NB.
