Choose the language you are comfortable with. I think Visual Basic.NET has pretty simple syntax and that the C++ syntax is a little harder. Delphi and Visual Basic.NET is pretty alike but I like Visual Basic.NET better.
Java doesn't seem so bad either, and it has loooads of information on the subject. I have a hard time finding a game programming book for Visual Basic.NET that isn't low rated.

Quote from Forum FAQ
The infamous "this" vs. "that" threads are considered flame bait. If you're debating between OpenGL and DirectX or C vs. C++, please try to refrain from creating "which one should I choose" or "which one is better" threads. These threads usually turn into an argument and rarely lead to any kind of conclusion. The best way to find out if something is right for you, is to try it for yourself or at the very least, spend some time researching the pros and cons.

Read it. Understand it. Follow it.

Python is good for beginners because it doesn't need too much earlier knowledge about anything to get started with it. And it is dead easy to use while still being a really good high level language.

...And there's lots of libraries for it, so you shouldn't end up into place where you must create your own foreign function interface to toy with graphics programming, and therefore not having requirement to know C before you can use it.
