Were we to hold monumental (in this case literally) self-regard against politicians, we'd disqualify virtually all of them for service, so I don't think building tributes in one's own name is weirder than, say, putting Annie Liebowitz portraits of your family on Christmas correspondence. It's gauche, but being a politician is gauche. Still, building your own elaborate tomb is a different kind of weird. It just is. Isn't there some kind of provision against sitting senators with tombs?
