A cheery counterpoint to Jon Stewart ruing the divisiveness that rends our country mere moments after telling Palin “f*** you.” We’ll have to take CNN’s word that it happened, as there’s no video — inexplicably, given the fact that SNL had backstage cameras rolling and is highly attuned to the power of online video right now. I confess, given the deranged, Sullivan-esque loathing so many lefties seem to feel for the ‘Cuda, I’m pleasantly surprised that Fey and Baldwin managed to be civil. HuffPo, which isn’t civil, naturally interprets their actions differently.

The name Palin used when checking into her hotel in NYC? “Tina,” of course.
