Dallas Cowboys fan asks White House to remove Jerry Jones as owner, GM

A Dallas Cowboys fan is taking his complaints with Jerry Jones straight to the top. 

“Steven M” of Fort Benning, Ga., has created a petition on the White House website asking the Obama Administration to remove Jones as the owner and general manager. The petition (via the Dallas Morning News) reads:

“We, the Citizens of the Great State of Texas, and Dallas Cowboys fans worldwide, have been oppressed by an over controlling, delusional, oppressive dictator for way too long. Request the Executive Branch’s immediate assistance in removal of owner and GM, Jerry Jones. His incompetence and ego have not only been an extreme disappointment for way too long, but moreover, it has caused extreme mental and emotional duress.”

Steven M. needs 25,000 signatures on his petition by Dec. 23…As of 10:30 a.m., he had 668.

This isn’t likely to get any results. Frankly, the White House is a little busy, what with that fiscal cliff and all. And Jones, when he isn’t inventing Jerry Wipes or starring in pizza commercials or getting locked out of the locker room (accidentally!), has said he has no intention of selling or giving up his general manager responsibilities.
