NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Yale librarian says Christine O'Donnell's TV ad declaring "I'm not a witch" during her unsuccessful U.S. Senate campaign has topped this year's best quotes.

Fred Shapiro, associate librarian at Yale Law School, released his fifth annual list of the most notable quotations of the year. In the ad, O'Donnell was responding to reports of her revelations that she had dabbled in witchcraft years ago.

The quote by O'Donnell, a tea party favorite running in Delaware, tied for first place with "I'd like my life back," the lament made in May by BP's CEO Tony Hayward after the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.

The original Yale Book of Quotations was published in 2006. Since then, Shapiro has released an annual list of the top 10 quotes.
