 Well, part of the problem is that you can use all of those arguments

 just look at D1 or just D2, and many times the complaints aren't as
 big an issue as they are made out to be once you start using the
 language. And yes, Lisp did seem an odd choice considering why he didn't
 choose the one of the other languages.

My take on this is he wanted to use Lisp and went looking for a justification.

But he was considering Clojure which is a dialect of Lisp and didn't choose it for the same reasons as Python and Ruby.
