Please forgive me because I haven't watched the show, but...a lot of these examples sound less like crowning moments of awesome and more "they covered this issue that I think is important and I agreed with them". Just wondering if some cleanup would be necessary.

I agree whole-heartedly.

How does one go about fixing this, then? Does a panel of people who've seen each moment get together and discuss whether or not something fits? Does someone make decisions based on wording? It's subjective, so I'd rather not go through and say "this doesn't SOUND awesome, so I'm deleting it".

But seriously, this is turning into a catalog for clever political rebuttals of "Jon pointed this out" rather than "gee that was sure awesome". But I'm hesitant to remove anything because then people will shout "IT'S SUBJECTIVE IT'S SUBJECTIVE" or just re add it without bothering to explain why.

I say you can start with taking out the zero-context examples (anything that's barely a sentence along the lines of 'Bullshit mountain again'), and if you're feeling adventurous, prune the ones that don't have some kind of effect, or don't otherwise showcase how far the show's gone. Them getting Crossfire canceled? Yes. Them getting that armed forces health care bill passed? Yes. Them getting the President to show up? Yes. Jon yelling for five minutes about something everyone agrees on? Not so much.
