1. You have got the combined index on (makeid, tagged) and not (tagged,
makeid) haven't you? Just checking.
2. If it's mostly tagged=true you are interested in you can always use a
partial index: CREATE INDEX ... (makeid) WHERE tagged
This might be a win even if you need a second index with WHERE NOT tagged.
Also, either I've not had enough cofee yet, or a bitmap scan is an odd
choice for only ~ 13000 rows out of 100 million.

Otherwise, see what Craig said.
I'm assuming this isn't the query that is CPU bound for a long time.
Unless your table is horribly bloated, there's no reason for that
judging by this plan.
