Conspiracy moonbats over at Bellaciao.org have finally cracked the mystery of Pres. Bush’s hump that was visible during the debates with Sen. Kerry. The analysis is so unbiased and is so complex that even the Framingham Study is mentioned in the analysis. In their professional opinion, the device is LifeVest, manufactured by LIFECOR.
From LIFECOR’s website:
The LifeVest is the first wearable defibrillator. Unlike an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), the LifeVest is worn outside the body rather than implanted in the chest. This device continuously monitors the patient’s heart with dry, non-adhesive sensing electrodes to detect life-threatening abnormal heart rhythms. If a life-threatening rhythm is detected, the device alerts the patient prior to delivering a shock, and thus allows a conscious patient to disarm the shock. If the patient is unconscious, the device releases a gel over the therapy electrodes and delivers an electrical shock to restore normal rhythm.
Good thing that the device did not go off. Presidential defibrillation during the debate would truly be a shocking national tragedy.
