Watch your step, presidential candidate Rick Santorum: Your old nemesis Dan Savage just threatened to take away the one good name you have left.

Santorum’s been cooking up a new war with Savage — the sex columnist and LGBT-rights activist who Goggle-bombed Santorum’s last name in 2003 — to help raise money for his campaign following some controversial statements Savage made on Bill Maher’s HBO show. More on all that here.Now Savage is returning fire, using a comedy video to warn Santorum against returning to the anti-gay rights rhetoric that helped define him as a star among social conservatives. The video was posted to the comedy site Funny Or Die Wednesday.

“Tell you what,” Savage says in the video. “I won’t redefine ‘Rick’ if you don’t attack gay people during your campaign.”

Savage then enlists famous Ricks to help send Santorum the message.
