What's in a noun?

I've long had a passion for collective nouns. There are some quite splendid one's around such as:
A murder of crows
A congress of Baboons
An aurora of Polar Bears
A troop of mushrooms
I have a web page listing of hundreds of them.
However, one group that doesn't seem to have a title is politicians...
Anyone any (printable) suggestions?  (A parliament of, is already used for owls.)
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

At any given moment in the universe many things happen. Coincidence is a matter of how close these events are in space, time and relationship.

I was thinking of something more along the lines of:  "a self-serving of"
