Antanagoge (an’-ta-na’-go-gee): Putting a positive spin on something that is nevertheless acknowledged to be negative or difficult.

As we continue to push for change against the rock-solid Republican Wall of thoughtless opposition, we will hurt and we will be hurt, but at the same time, by pushing, we will build up and strengthen our resolve, and we will push some more, and we will become stronger, and we will start to move that Republican Wall off its cynical foundation, and come November that Republican Wall will come tumbling down.
