well, much of the ubuntu desktop depends on python, so when you remove it, it removes a lot of packages. the best quick answer I can give you is to reinstall the ubuntu-desktop package with this command. it will reinstall python and all the standard applications that come with ubuntu by default. it may copy over some of your config files though, so you may have to reconfigure some settings:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

you can run this from recovery mode if you no longer have a desktop:
