Cheney cited, but not for shooting attorney

This posted by the AP this morning:
Vice President Dick Cheney has been given a warning citation for breaking Texas hunting law by failing to buy a $7 stamp allowing him to shoot upland game birds.

The warning came from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department after it investigated Cheney’s accidental shooting of a fellow quail hunter Saturday on the private Armstrong Ranch in the south part of the state.

The department found the accident was caused by a “hunter’s judgment factor” when Cheney sprayed another hunter while aiming at flying birds.
Judgment factor? I'm almost ready to ask if we could say the same thing about other actions by the VP, but I'll refrain.
