Omaha, Nebraska - Award-winning songwriter, Karen Sokolof Javitch, today released her latest political satirical song, “Why Don’t You Run for President?”

Why Don't You Run for President?


“I thought it was so funny that every day there seemed to be a new candidate running for president – mostly on the Democrat side.  And it seems that some of these people came out of the woodwork.  Who are they?   Do they just want their fifteen minutes of fame? In modern history, we’ve never had so many people declaring their candidacy.  It seemed only natural that I write and record a song to politely ‘mock’ them,” proclaimed Ms. Javitch.

As a service to your listeners and to provoke conversation, feel free to play the song without any royalties, license or performance fees, or post to social media.

Karen’s JMR Production, who has been recording political songs for years as an equal opportunity mocker, stated, “I don’t want to favor Republicans or Democrats in my songs. They both have their humorous sides.”

Besides Karen’s 15 albums, she has co-written 4 musicals and was the creator and co-host of a popular Omaha radio show, “It’s the Beat.” Her musicals include “Princess Diana the Musical," "From Generation to Generation," and "Love at the Café.”  These shows have been performed in many cities in the United States. In addition, Ms. Javitch has raised over $350,000 for national and local charities with her original music.

Karen’s diverse creations include songs about exercising, celebrities, holidays, political figures, babies, children, math, patriotism, love and family. She has more than 100 YouTube videos and some have gone viral including one humorous song about the Octomom what received more than nine million views.

Karen’s music has been featured in three movies and on multiple TV shows.  She is a very prolific songwriter who creates music for everyone from age 1 to 101!
