Because removing the shell-quote-argument call fixed it for me:

    (when (eq system-type 'windows-nt)
      (setq python-shell-exec-path '("C:/Python27"))
      (add-function :override (symbol-function 'python-shell-calculate-command)
                    (lambda ()
                      (let ((exec-path (python-shell-calculate-exec-path)))
                        (format "%s %s"
                                (executable-find python-shell-interpreter)
                                python-shell-interpreter-args)))))
