Should we just accept "Me and Him" as subjects of sentences or rail against this grammatical error?
Please, please rally the English majors around the flagpole and get rid of this grammatical error. It drives me nuts!
Just as bad: "Him and I", either as subject or object. "Him and I went to the store." "Susie came to the store with him and I."
I think of using "I" no matter what the circumstances as a kind of "me" phobia that people have when they haven't sorted out the subject/object thing, know that there's often an issue with using "me", and decide to err on the side sounding better by using "I".
We need a hub helping people with this usage. I heard Andy Samberg on Jay Leno talk about a production he was doing in conjunction with someone. "Him and I worked on it...." iiii yiii yiii! Rule of thumb for young people to ask themselves: "What would (President Obama, or Mitt Romney, or Jon Stewart, or Conen Obrien say?)" Even Conen wouldn't say "Him and me worked on this project together."
I don't understand why anyone with grammatical know-how would allow themselves to be swept up in the river of insanity called illiteracy. That said though, I've found the best thing to do is to speak and write correctly yourself. It's impossible to make a dent otherwise.
