Oh dear no there's _plenty_ wrong with Python. It's dynamic
typing nature means that simple objects have huge amounts of
baggage that they have to carry around, mostly never used.
C sucks for programming too, for the reasons you outline.
But guess what folks! C and Python are not the only programming
languages in the world!! You won't believe it, but other
programming languages have been invented.
My personal fave at the moment is OCaml. About as fast as C,
statically typed, no buffer overflows, small memory footprint,
access to Perl & Python libraries, and loads of native libs.
