This suggests you're actually not using the MacPython you installed.
The Python.org build installs everything into /Library. /System/
Library contains the Python that ships with OS X.
To summarize: /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework and /Library/
Frameworks/Python.framework are two different Python installations.
You seem to be running the latter while attempting to run the former.
