I totally agree with Smith. No matter what you do, you cannot change the manager's personality nor can you get rid of him.
In most situations like these, I have noticed that the higher ups support the manager and if anything the whistle blower comes out looking bad.
I wouldn't recommend drastic measures or even hopping your manager and reaching the higher ups. Doing that will only sour your relationship with your manager and higher ups. Instead just try to speak less, get conservative and continue doing your job.
