You're using pygame (probably pygame 1.9.1) built for python 3.1, but...

...you're using python 3.2.

Don't do that.  Your versions need to match.  Since I don't see a
version of pygame built for python 3.2 on windows, you'll need to
either go back to python 3.1, or wait for someone to build pygame for
3.2.  You might be able to build it yourself, but I don't know how
convoluted that is.
