Thanks for taking your time to report this issue and help making Ubuntu better.

I get the same error message when attempting to start idle-python2.7 2.7.6-7 on Ubuntu Trusty.

It prevents the package (or a dependent one) from functioning correctly at all.

This bug was fixed in the package python2.7 - 2.7.6-8

python2.7 (2.7.6-8) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Update to 20140322, taken from the 2.7 branch.
  * Install updated idle icons. LP: #1295969.
  * Update the ssl.match_hostname backport: Change behavior of
    ``ssl.match_hostname()`` to follow RFC 6125, for security reasons.
    It now doesn't match multiple wildcards nor wildcards inside IDN fragments.
    Closes: #740255.
