Python too slow?

I'm pretty new to Python, and even newer to Image/Video processing,
and trying to get started on a project similar to GRL Vienna's laser
marker. I found some sample code here http://janto.blogspot.com/2006/01/motion-capture-in-python.html,
but after running the code with the included sample input file, it
seems quite slow (1-2 seconds from start to finish to do the 800 by
600 gif image).

Is there a better way to do color tracking, or is Python just too slow
as an interpreted language to do any effective color tracking?
