The Sayings of Chairman Frank

Frank Rizzo was mayor of Philadelphia in the 1970s, so he was before my time. But I came across a website that mentions an out of print book, The Sayings of Chairman Frank OR I Never Saw My Mother Naked, which looks hilarious. Some choice quotes:

  • “I like art. It was us Italians who started most of it.”
  • “The streets are safe in Philadelphia. It’s only the people who make them unsafe.”
  • “Just wait after November you’ll have a front row seat because I’m going to make Attila the Hun look like a faggot.”
  • “A conservative is a liberal who got mugged the night before.”
  • “Listen, Foglietta couldn’t beat me in South Philly if I gave him the voting machines tonight. Councilman Foglietta, if you had any sense, you could take a reading of the crowd here today and go home and slit your throat.”
  • Politicians like him are a thing of the past. This is mostly a good thing (his political career was beset by scandals), but there’s definitely an entertainment value that we no longer have. If you’re curious LOLadelphia! has a summary of his career.
