Question:Cheney has an abnormal heart rhythm?

How can someone that doesn't have a heart have an abnormal heart rhythm? OK, politics and bad jokes aside, I thought Cheney had a defibrillator put in. Wouldn't this have kicked in and shocked him if it was abnormal?

Does anyone have a defibrillator? Have you had to be shocked? What does it feel like?
