Dallas Cowboys fan petitions President Obama to fire Jerry Jones

What do you do when your team under-performs and the owner refuses to fire himself as general manager? If you're "America's team," you go to the head of America...President Barack Obama. From the Dallas Morning News:

In the petitions section of the White House website, one was created for President Barack Obama to have Jones removed from his control of the Cowboys.

It 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.”
