The League of Conservation Voters is the latest interest group to spend money on television ads in Iowa.

They're kind of cute. Bill Hillsman, the pioneering admaker, edited the ads to fit the tagline that "Green is the new Red, White and Blue." The musical score is a version of Kermit The Frog's "It Ain't Easy Being Green."

"We are pushing to reframe this as more than just a domestic environmental problem -- but rather a global security issue -- the resolution of which will largely reside on the shoulders of our next president," an LCV spokesman says.

By the way: this is the first television ad that will remind Iowa Republicans that Mitt Romney is Mormon.
