python and bit shifts and byte order, oh my!

I played with bit shifts on my PC and tried the same thing on a Mac OS X
machine. They produced the same results, so I would assume that the way
the bits and how they are interpreted are as in this link:
At least in memory while the interpreter is running.
It's my first attempt down there and I need to know. So, is this how
Python works at the bit level?
I know that storing the number on disk means byte-order, etc. But, that
doesn't seem to be in play here.
Do I have the right thinking here? Or am I wrong? If so, how doesn't
it actually work?
