Git alias problem

Recently, don't know why, I found the git aliasing does not work. When I use git st aliasing command, I got below error:

fatal: cannot exec 'git-st': Not a directory
Problem is /usr/bin/python is not directed to directory

After search for a while, I found it should be caused by my environment variable PATH.

Use the command echo $PATH |tr ':' '\n' |xargs ls -ld, I found there is a symbolic link in the list /usr/bin/python -> python2.7 If it is removed, the git aliasing problem is gone.

I think it should be noticed that the environment path should points to directories not to files.

[~]$ echo $PATH |tr ':' '\n' |xargs ls -ld
