House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had no time for questions about Rep. Michele Bachmann's response to the Supreme Court's decision that DOMA is unconstitutional. "Who cares?" Pelosi, D-Calif., scoffed in a press conference.

Bachmann, R-Minn., had put out a statement in response to the ruling, saying that "Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted."
