    HuffPo has a slideshow of some of Phyllis Diller's best quotes: Phyllis Diller Quotes: Remembering The Comedy Legend

    She was a true original.
    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
