LOCAL POWER RANKINGS WHO’S GENERATING BUZZ IN THE D.C. AREA?

BARACK OBAMA

Memo to Nationals ownership: You’re officially a laughingstock when the president makes fun of you on TV.

LAVAR ARRINGTON

Old No. 56 (aka QB Killa) now has his own forum to pillage Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato after every Redskins loss.

TED LERNER

A no-show at the news conference Monday to announce Manny Acta’s firing. Pathetic.

MANNY ACTA

Contrary to what fans think, being fiery with this ballclub would have served zero purpose.

TOM SOEHN

The senior-most D.C. professional coach. Translation: The clock is ticking, Tom.

TWT FIVE MOST DYSFUNCTIONAL PRO SPORTS TEAMS

1. Oakland Raiders — Al Davis’ latest move was releasing a draft pick before training camp even though the pick hasn’t been arrested or given just cause for release.

2. Los Angeles Clippers — Just Google “Donald Sterling” and let the tomfoolery begin. By far the worst-run franchise in the NBA.

3. Washington Nationals — Although Bud “The Car Salesman” Selig is to blame, the Lerners continue to make wrong move after wrong move.

4. Chicago Blackhawks — After an appearance in the conference finals and luring Marian Hossa from Detroit, GM Dale Tallon is fired. Comical.

5. Washington Redskins — Even before training camp, speculation as to whom The Danny hires as coach in 2010 is running wild.
