JFK and Helen, Sittin’ in a Tree October 6, 2013

Trying to wrap my head around this one:

Helen Thomas covered 10 presidents, from Eisenhower through Obama, in her time as a White House correspondent. She also went on a date with one of them…

While working for UP, she went on a date with John F. Kennedy, then a young Democratic congressman from Massachusetts, whom she subsequently covered in the White House.

“How did it go?” her friend asked her.

“He was too fresh,” Helen reportedly replied.

In the spirit of historical inquiry, I’ve found a photo of Helen Thomas in her early years:

Helen as a fresh young thing, happily abandoning principles of journalistic integrity by dating politicians. JFK tortured by memories of his youthful indiscretions.

I’m still not seeing it.

OK, I started mentally singing the rhyme but then it became…
JFK and Helen, Sittin’ in a Tree, F-E-L-L-A-T-I-N-G. First cums JFK, then comes marriage to a suitable political wife…

You’re the devil geoff! ;-)

The spit curls on the forehead in pic on the left are fugly, but I can see a relatively foxy lady with JFK in pic on the right.

You dudes just can’t get the more recent Ugly Old Witch images out of your head.

C’mon! Be honest! You would so hit it back then.

The bs meter is pinging strong, but on the other hand, JFK was a sailor, so it could have happened.

On the right? Matronly is the kindest word I can come up with.

As with all things Kennedy, the next question is, did Bobby and “The Patriarch” also get a turn?
