Well, Spez has tried to make peace between the Lisp, Ruby and Python warriors with a straight and simple explanation for the Reddit rewrite in Python.
"We were already familiar with Python. It's fast, development in Python is fast, and the code is clear. In most cases, the Lisp code translated very easily into Python. Lots of people have written web applications in Python, and there's plenty of code from which to learn. It's been fun so far, so we'll see where it takes us."
