(Newser) – Sarah Palin roused the Tea Party faithful at a tax day rally in Madison, Wisconsin, criticizing not only President Obama but the "GOP establishment" for giving up too much, reports CNN. Her takeaway line: “What we need is for you to stand up, GOP, and fight. GOP leaders need to learn how to fight like a girl.”

Other notable lines:

  • “"We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic," she said, referring to GOP lawmakers.
  • "I’m in Madison because this is where real courage and real solidarity can be found,” she said in praising Gov. Scott Walker's law curbing union power.
  • “When the history of the Tea Party is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten. And the 2012 election begins here."
  • "You ignored us in 2010,” she said of President Obama. “But you cannot ignore us in 2012."
