Does Python scale for heavy web loads?

Question: Using Python as a CGI and running it under Apache, would
Python realistically be able to handle 5,000 hits an hour and not
degrade performance?  With Python's threading, (ex: using a
script as an example) I call to render some information,
only one thread runs right?  No other people can hit until finishes with its original request and
serving the information back...Correct?
