Nope, it's a factory, and it's written in the doc:

A factory function that returns a new condition variable object. A condition variable allows one or more threads to wait until they are notified by another thread.

See Condition Objects."

It has been changed in Python 3.3 (#10968): threading.Condition is now a class, instead of a factory.
