From Roll Call:

“[Senator Arlen] Specter also created a new category of political joke: the Alfonse D’Amato adultery joke. Specter said he was riding a train once with the former New York GOP Senator. The porter came by asking passengers, “What’ll it be, rye, Scotch or bourbon?” A minister on the train was offended, indignantly exclaiming, “Rye, scotch or bourbon?! Why, I’d commit adultery first!”

D’Amato jumped up and yelled after the porter, “Wait, wait! I didn’t know that was a choice!”
