Pardon for Turkeys

In an annual event, President Bush, the leader of the mightiest nation on earth, pardoned 2 turkeys that were planned for the annual Thankgiving dinner. Read about it on CNN.
This is so much of an annual ritual that the only surprise would be if the turkeys did not get pardoned, but it is expected that every year, the president will have to do it, otherwise, there will be lots of questions asked, and the president might be portrayed as an man without a heart.
And what will happen to the lucky turkeys ? These turkeys will be flown at US Government expense to California where they will serve as Grand Marshals at the annual Thankgiving parade. Of course, we still don't know as to whether President Bush or other people in the White House will eat any other turkey for Thanksgiving. And in a final twist to the story, the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA - remember the nude protest by Pamela Anderson ?) sent Bush a turkey made of Tofu.
