Maybe your python2.5 not working good!?
But, I use python 2.6 , and i use this for your problem:
import urllib
html = urllib.urlopen("http://www.rediff.com/").read()
print html

If you want use authenticate then...
You make working urllib2 and use this
>>>auth = urllib2.Request(auth_uri, authreq_data)
