Try:

import re
import urllib2
url = 'http://www.google.com/search?num=20&hl=en&q=ipod&btnG=Search'
user_agent = 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT)'
headers = {'User-Agent' : user_agent}
req = urllib2.Request(url, None, headers)
file_source=open("google_source.txt", 'w')
file_source.write(urllib2.urlopen(req).read())
file_source.close()

I think Google blocks the User-Agent urllib2 sends.
