My version:

Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Jun 24 2010, 21:47:49)

Noticed that there is a more current build of 3.2, wondering if maybe this could be the issue? I'm sure also there is a way to run from Terminal, but I am certainly not at that level of familiarity with Python to do so....thanks in advance if anyone spots this...
I can't think why it wouldn't work for you. It works here. You don't need Python 3.x. Most of the python scripts around are written for Python 2.x where x>=5, including this one. It may well not work with 3.x at all.

What happens if you just double-click the applescript? (It should ask you to locate kindlestrip.py - just click cancel if it does.)
