Golfing in Python is rare because good python code tends to be not very much longer than the shortest possible version. There's also less in the core than Perl and far fewer side effects/context-dependencies.

That said, you occasionally see golfing - for example Wypy was golfed down from about 21 lines - and Java converts posting Java-ish Python to comp.lang.python tend to receive suggestions for how to reduce their code by about 70%... ;-)
