One of the most-circulated comments in the wake of today's Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage came from Nancy Pelosi. She and others at a news conference were asked to respond to remarks from Michele Bachmann, who earlier said: "Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted."

  • Pelosi's response: "Who cares?" ("It's the two-handed shrug that really makes it," adds Joe Coscarelli at Daily Intel. Click the link to see video.)
Others, including gay Congressman Mark Takano of California, followed with lengthier responses. (More Nancy Pelosi stories.)
