I have some experience in BASIC programming, but I have never used Python. I'd like to have at least some working knowledge so that I might at least create some simple scripts for use with Blender. I've searched for tutorials, both text and video, but they are either too basic and don't really get into syntax, etc. or they are way over my head as a beginner, and not really specific to Blender users. Any suggestions on where to begin are appreciated.

If you have never used python, than a good place to start is the python tutorial at python.org . Depending on your programming background, you can either skim through it or study it intently.

After that, learning blender programming is like learning any set of domain specific classes. The blender wiki has some resources.
