Where the test gets funky:

 >>> import sqlite3
 >>> conn = sqlite3.connect(':memory:')
 >>> c = conn.cursor()
 >>> c.execute('''CREATE TABLE t1 (d DATE, t TEXT, i INTEGER)''')
<sqlite3.Cursor object at 0xb75ac980>
 >>> c.execute('''INSERT INTO t1 (d, t, i) VALUES ('foo', 'bar', 
<sqlite3.Cursor object at 0xb75ac980>
 >>> c.execute('SELECT * FROM t1')
<sqlite3.Cursor object at 0xb75ac980>
 >>> c.fetchall()
[(u'foo', u'bar', u'baz')]

Reminds me a bit of this [1] thread.
