: I was just wondering if the pronoun used in this phrase should be in the nominative or objective case. Google gives an edge to the objective case, especially in the case of "I" vs. "me", (but mostly because "More Fool Me" was a song by Genesis). Thanks in advance.

If it means 'You are more of a fool' or 'More of a fool are you', then according to grammar it should be nominative. However, idiom may prefer the accusative case, eg 'More fool me', as it does in 'It is me.'
