In a bid to curry political favor, college classmates of Senator John Kerry (D-MA) funded a campus monument to the onetime presidential candidate, sources say.
The monument, located on the main lawn of Tufts University, is a caricatured likeness of the Senator's elongated head. Wealthy Democrats from the Tufts class of 1964 privately raised all the funds for the 20 foot tall granite monument, which some have compared to the famous stone heads of Easter Island.
A local man who found a photo of the monument at a tag sale, however, had a different opinion.
"It looks like a Don Martin cartoon to me," he told reporters. "I would have bought it for laughs, but my family is broke and I can't justify spending money on something so hideous."
