Some fans are so desperate for Jerry Jones to relinquish power that they are asking the highest office in the land to do something about it. 

The Dallas Morning News reports things have become a tad ridiculous around the Cowboys, their fans and their outspoken owner who enjoys having a say in pretty much all things personnel. 

Proving you can petition just about anything, it seems a man from Georgia has produced one that hopes to get President Barack Obama to do something about this Jerry Jones guy. 

You can see the petition here, and 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.

Before a petition can be taken seriously, it needs a minimum of 25,000 virtual signatures. As of this writing, the total is a remarkable 21,397. 

It's safe to say the White House will soon have a rather ridiculous petition on their desk to consider. 

The report does well to remind us Jones is a man who likes extreme power over the team he owns and is not about to kowtow to fans or anyone else when it comes to making decisions. 

There is no way of knowing if the franchise will degenerate into something akin to the Oakland Raiders under Al Davis, or if Jones will finally right the ship and get another Super Bowl that he very much covets. 

What is clear is that the Cowboys are not on the right track this season, coming into Week 13 at 5-6 and having just suffered a loss to the Washington Redskins. 

Fans are frustrated and willing to think outside the box. 

At least, that's one way of explaining the thousands who have provided their signature to plead with the President to kick this owner down a notch or two. 

There is more Cray, Cray where that came from on Twitter.
