Oprah Almost Has Heart Attack When Machine Doesn't Count Her Vote

Talk show host Oprah Winfrey early-voted on Thursday, but apparently had problems getting the machine to accept her choice for president:

When I voted yesterday electronically, the first vote that you vote for on the ballot is the presidential candidate. It was my first time doing electronic, so I didn't mark the X strong enough, or I held down too long. Because then when I went back to check it, it had not recorded my presidential vote

When she noticed this had occurred, she almost had a heart attack (video embedded below the fold, h/t NBer Mazzi):

Too bad she noticed, huh?

Of course, if she hadn't, she probably would have blamed her voting difficulties on President Bush, Diebold, and those awful Republicans that are always trying to disenfranchise people.
