Why I am a pragmatic Pineapple

Over the last several years we have seen a shift in the political environment with a polarization between far-right conservatives and moderate Republicans. In the likeness of Virginia's Governor Bob McDonnell, Political Pineapples do not compromise their values and core beliefs. However, they are pragmatic and apply Ronald Reagan's 80 percent rule: "The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally -- not a 20 percent traitor." This is what separates the Pineapples from the Coconuts. Coconuts are hard and rigid on the outside, so much so they require a hammer to crack. Pineapples, on the other hand, may appear prickly but are soft and sweet in the middle.
