Majority of Nobel Jury Objected to Obama Winning The Peace Prize

A report from Verdens Gang (a Norwegian tabloid) said that the majority of the Nobel Jury objected to Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. I guess that means they disagreed with the notion that the Peace Prize was not about peace but about about making 'less tension'. Of course Obama did win, so they must have been brought around. What exactly is the point of saying this; some of them wanted to go on record that they thought it was a mistake to select Obama before they did?

I do not know what is funnier, the stream of jokes (see Steven Crowder's, Saturday Night Live's (SNL), Reason TV's and Perfunction's jokes) over the choice or the way they have handled the situation since the announcement

"Three of the five members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee had objections to the Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to US President Barack Obama, the Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang (VG) reported Thursday.

"VG has spoken to a number of sources who confirmed the impression that a majority of the Nobel committee, at first, had not decided to give the peace prize to Barack Obama," the newspaper said.
