Intentionally misrepresenting someone's views. Just like fake journalist Glenn Greenwald does.

Building a logical, fact centered case, with biting sarcasm, against someone, usually a politician or member of the media -- who is guilt of hypocrisy, wrongdoing, or incompetence.

A proper Greenwalding is done in such a manner that there is very room left for the accused to logically or factually refute those assertions.
Greenwalding

It's anything but surprising that President Obama has chosen Elena Kagan to replace John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court. Nothing is a better fit for this White House than a blank slate, institution-loyal, seemingly principle-free careerist who spent the last 15 months as the Obama administration's lawyer vigorously defending every one of his assertions of extremely broad executive authority. The Obama administration is filled to the brim with exactly such individuals -- as is reflected by its actions and policies -- and this is just one more to add to the pile. The fact that she'll be replacing someone like John Paul Stevens and likely sitting on the Supreme Court for the next three decades or so makes it much more consequential than most, but it is not a departure from the standard Obama approach.
