use urllib2, for example :

import urllib2

def install_proxy():
    """initialize urllib2 to go through a proxy"""
    proxy_support = urllib2.ProxyHandler(
        { 'http' : "http://username:passwd@IP_proxy:8080",
          'ftp' : "http://username:passwd@IP_proxy:8080" } )
    opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy_support)
    urllib2.install_opener(opener)
