confusion lurks around the concepts of static/dynamic and strong/weak typing

Humbly suggest from the evidence of that comp.lang.python discussion, you in particular were confused.

Consult a reference work like:

"Type Systems"

"Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation"

If I may suggest, you refer only to typing as pertains to "variables" (presumably meaning the names bound to values), and not the values themselves.
