Disagree. Hey, if it’s good enough for T.S. Eliot, it’s good enough for the President. Like anti-semitism!
Good enough for Shakespeare too!
I was going to rehash the old “in noun phrase conjunctions, case is assigned to the matrix noun phrase, not the conjuncts” explanation, but I’m a little behind on the current literature. Instead, I’d like to look at this quote:
Here, then, is a tip, Mr. President. Nobody chooses the wrong pronoun when it’s standing on its own. If you’re tempted to say “for Michelle and I” in tonight’s speech, just mentally omit Michelle (sorry, Mrs. Obama), and you’ll get it right. And no one will get on your case.
I direct the grammarians to Mad Magazine: “What, me worry?”
I don’t see the issue. To me, Michelle and I sounds perfectly correct. Although, reading up on the issue, I can see that I’ve been doing it wrong. But I tend to prefer I to me. Not quite sure why, but that’s the way it is.
