He may have lost his national political mojo in the 2012 Republican presidential race, but Texas Gov. Rick Perry apparently didn't lose his humor or his swagger.

Just consider his trip to Utah last weekend for meetings of the Republican Governors Association, which he once led. As the meetings wrapped up in Park City, we hear Perry detoured to the state capitol on his way to Salt Lake City International Airport to fly home.

After greeting Lt. Gov. Greg Bell, Perry was given a tour of the building, stopping in Gov. Gary Herbert's office. It must have been comfortable, because he jokingly moved in.

Perry took pictures of himself sitting at Herbert's desk. Then with his feet on the guv's desk. And finally while holding a picture of Herbert's wife, which he promptly forwarded to Herbert's cellphone. Herbert got a big laugh out of the whole thing.
