So Say-Pay is going away??? For real though?

We interrupt our regularly scheduled post (the follow-up to the eHarmony fail) to bring the latest...

Mayhaps I spoke too soon with the whole why won't Say-Pay go away posting. Today, Governor Palin did just that. From the Huffington Post:
Sarah Palin's speech this morning rocked Alaskans and people around the country. Palin's predictability is her unpredictability. I'm seeing Alaskan flags on cars, in front of houses, some citizens expressing their own Independence Day. Other citizens are angry and playing the blame game; the bloggers, the MSM, Alaskan legislators, her family under attack, etc.
For weeks the rumors of a criminal investigation against the governor have been brewing. They are rumors, but are swirling fresh again with Palin's resignation. I'm holding my breath for the other "Naughty Monkey" to drop. Another theory for the resignation is that the Palins would have to disclose the book deal as well as other financial details as governor.
Personally, I smell something afoul but I always have a conspiracy theory in my back pocket. But I for one, truly hope she means it this time.

What do you think? 2012 preparation time, big time scandal brewing or something else?
