Or you may consider wrapping it in a dictionary:

Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more
information.
IDLE 0.6 -- press F1 for help
>>> def caseA(*args):
 print "CaseA ", args


>>> def caseB(*args):
 print "CaseB ", args


>>> def caseOther(*args):
 print "CaseOther ", args


>>> switch = {'A':caseA, 'B':caseB}
>>> switch.get('A',caseOther)
<function caseA at 0103153C>
>>> switch.get('A',caseOther)(1,2,3)
CaseA  (1, 2, 3)
>>> switch.get('B',caseOther)(1,2,3)
CaseB  (1, 2, 3)
>>> switch.get('C',caseOther)(1,2,3)
CaseOther  (1, 2, 3)
>>>
