How about something like:

>>> def iif(condition, true=True, false=False):
...     if condition:
...             return true
...     return false
...
>>> iif('foo' == 'bar', 'w00t', 'l33t')
'l33t'
>>> iif('bar' == 'bar', 'w00t', 'l33t')
'w00t'
>>> iif('bar' == 'bar')
True
>>> iif('foo' == 'bar')
False
>>>

Hope this helps.
