It does look like an interesting read. But Philip Klein needs an editor who graduated from 12th grade with me. That’s where I learned that this use of “whomever” is flat-out wrong:

…by whomever happens to be at the helm of the GOP.

Ouch.

My English teacher in 12th grade retaught us everything we were supposed to have already learned about in previous grades. (Thanks, Mr. Floyd!) I overlook some stuff intentionally—dangling participles, for example—but never this kind of error.

(Don’t trust Mr. Floyd? See here for a couple of rules to help you out.)
