It should be possible :-)

First thing, try yum 2.1.13 and see if that helps:
# rpm -Uvh http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/yum-
repo/yum-2.1.13-1.fc3.noarch.rpm

If you're still having problems, try updating python first:
# yum update python\*
and then a general update:
# yum update

If any of these steps result in complaints from yum, please post the
full output from yum plus the version of any packages yum complains
about, e.g. for the above:

# rpm -q python python-devel
