MySQLdb error - PLEASE SAVE ME!

P: n/a
Ok. I am trying to read a csv file with three strings separated by commas.
I am trying to insert them into a MySQL DB online.
MySQLdb is installed, no problems.

I think that I am having some kind of error with my csv going into the
fields and being broken apart correctly. Can someone please help? I
attached the code below, it does work with that SQL server also if you
want to try and run it. Thanks in advance ..
