Yes, you could certainly create a button which mass sends a message.

A plugin could easily be written to allow you to specify a list of people
to send 'broadcast' messages to and then allow you to type in the message
once and have it sent to all of them.

To answer your question though, a first step to doing it more easily would
be to copy and paste the message rather than typing it out every time, but
that's not really a solution.
