OK. **PLEASE** go to comp.lang.lisp and tell them exactly
that, so you'll get tossed on your bum.  If the last Lisp/Python
thread said anything meaningfull, it was that static typeing
has nothing to do with generating efficient native code.
It helps, but it isn't the only thing.

Please do check out the last Lisp vs. Python thread here on this
newsgroup for a rundown on the whole thing.
