There's nothing much wrong.  cur.fetchall is returning a list of all 
the selected rows, and each row is a tuple of fields.  Each tuple is 
being converted for display by repr, so the strings are shown as 
unicode, which is what they are internally.  Change the print to

for (field,) in cur.fetchall():
     print field

and you'll see your plain-text strings.
