There's one advantage to taking some time to watch these goings-on. Over the past few days, there have been steady setbacks as to votes on cutting down what looks like quite a sizable budget despite assertions that it would be completed by a certain time. There also has been a steady flow of e-mails requesting donations for a shortfall in grass-roots fundraising. (Would it be a presumption to copy and paste the text?)
If the party in question is trying to portray a steadfast image, I'd suggest having a technician check out those optics.
