small tweak help need with jquery ajax call

while, working with my code, i am working on showing a message and hiding it after 5 seconds, but due to some reason, its is not working, i am going nuts here and its late now

here is my code snippet:

$("#updatefeedback").bind("click",function(){
            var data = $("form").serialize();
            $.post('sbtfeedback.cfm',data, function(data) {
                  $("#feedback_response").html(data).text()
            });
      });

my server-side file returns like this

<cfif len('FORM.sbname') IS 0>
    Error! Please Provide Your Name
    <cfelseif len('FORM.sbemail') IS 0>
    Error! Please Provide Your Email
    <cfelseif isDefined('FORM.sbcomments')>
    Error! Please provide Some Comments
<cfelse>
Cool! We did it
</cfif>

so minifying all tasks, i am actually returning the code rather than some kind of variable

the issue i am facing is, i am able to show a message but unable to hide it, don no why, what i m missing

what about :
$("#updatefeedback").bind("click",function(){
            var data = $("form").serialize();
            $.post('sbtfeedback.cfm',data, function(data) {
                  $("#feedback_response").html(data).text();
                  setTimeout(function() { $("#feedback_response").fadeOut("fast"); }, 5000);
            });
      });

If you want replace .fadeIn("fast") by show();
$("#updatefeedback").bind("click",function(){
            var data = $("form").serialize();
            $.post('sbtfeedback.cfm',data, function(data) {
                  $("#feedback_response").html(data).text();
                  $("#feedback_response").fadeIn("fast");
                  setTimeout(function() { $("#feedback_response").fadeOut("fast"); }, 5000);
            });
      });
