(Newser) – 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.
