Petition calls for Obama's help to fire Jerry Jones

Posted: Updated:

First, Texans wanted to secede from the United States. Now disgruntled Cowboys fans are demanding President Barack Obama let someone else go.

A petition asking for the removal of Jerry Jones as General Manager and owner of the Dallas Cowboys is posted on the White House's web site.

"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," the petition states.

"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."

The document was posted on the White House's "We the People" page on Nov. 23, one day after the Cowboys lost to the Washington Redskins 38-31.

At 11:15 a.m. CST on Tuesday, more than 1,500 people had signed the petition. The creators are hoping for 25,000 signatures by Dec. 23.

There's no word on what would happen if the goal is reached.
