I tried last night (about 12 hours ago) and it was down then. It is still down this morning. It is hosted in the Netherlands, so I doubt it's connected to the Twitter/Facebook stuff. I also Googled for mirrors, but Python doesn't host mirrors anymore. Too bad.
Of course this is the weekend that I was going to install 3.X and start converting. I could use Active State's version, but I think I'll wait until python.org comes back up.
