Madea’s back, and not a moment too soon. For one thing, we really need her brand of tough love now. As we’ll see in “Madea Goes to Jail,” which opens today, this multiplex matriarch could shape our nation up in no time. In fact, if she’d been in charge all these years, we might not be in the mess we’re in at all.

Just take a look at the way she runs her own household. The cross-dressing creation of writer/director/actor Tyler Perry, Mable (Madea) Simmons is a force of nature as dangerous as any tornado, and she knows it.
