I thought this was an interesting use of the word.
YEASTY -- " 'I'm excited,' said (Nick) Clooney, a Democrat who will be making his first bid for elective office. 'I believe that the next year will be yeasty in politics in Kentucky and in the country, and it is an honor to be a part of that process.'" From "It's Clooney for Congress/ Yep, Nick is taking a shot" by Michael Collins, Cincinnati Post, Washington Bureau. November 24, 2003. http://www.cincypost.com/2003/11/24/clooney112403.html
Part of the yeastiness Mr. Clooney is talking about is due to the fact that Kentucky is going to have a Republican governor for the first time in 30+ years.
