Tim Chavez: don't mangle reason for Spanish-language political ads

Former Tennessean columnist Tim Chavez, in his blog Political Salsa, tells Bill O'Reilly here why Spanish-language political ads exist:
The political ads are in Spanish because the voter is more comfortable in communicating in Spanish, not that he or she cannot speak English.
Chavez goes on to say that O'Reilly's discussion of Hispanic voters should have included a Hispanic panelist.

An interesting discussion about the linguistic diversity of the Hispanic population is this one, by the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
