Removing Python is a bad idea as much of Ubuntu depends on it. Reinstalling Ubuntu is the easiest and safest way to get it back.

Didn't you see the warnings telling you which packages depend on python and thus will be removed with Python?

Does it remove the desktop environment, or just the ubuntu-desktop meta package?

I gathered that python was something important, as I see it's the top running process (shown in my Conky System Monitor) every time I boot up.

That's why I don't bother with much package uninstalling, sometimes there are numerous ones that can be deleted with the unwanted one. 

 

End result > Unbootable OS. 

 

If I do happen to remove something, will always check to see that's going with it, even if it was software that I installed. Some of the packaged for that one may be needed by other components of the OS. This is especially true if selecting "Mark for Complete Removal".
