You read reddit.com, and you want to know why they switched?

That's an interesting assertion. LISP certainly had an influence on 
python, but i don't think it's really related - they're pretty different 
in fundamental ways.

On the other hand, i sort of see what you mean - it has this lightweight, 
magical feeling, a sense of effortless power, as LISP does.
