    "We don't work for you anymore, Nancy Pelosi. You're fired. And Mr. Obama and your czars, you're next, because now, we can see 2012 from our house."

    Palin was the headliner at a rally on behalf of Sharron Angle, the tea party-backed Republican running against Reid, the Senate majority leader.

    Palin and the Tea Party Express drew more than 9,000 people to an anti-establishment rally in Reid's hometown of Searchlight back in March.

    Angle couldn't attend Monday's rally because the national committee based in California has made independent expenditures on her behalf. contributed to this report.
