Sure, you can write bad code in any language, but in my experience Python is not particularly slower than other script languages. Here is a benchmark that appears to validate that experience: http://www.timestretch.com/FractalBenchmark.html Another one is here: http://acker3.ath.cx/wordpress/archives/7
Lua might be something to look at.
Of course you will always be able to write faster code in C, but this will take you some more time.
