Most of the problem is here:

(BTW, you lied about the query, because this index condition doesn't
match anything in the given query text.)

Pre-8.0 releases aren't capable of making useful statistical estimates
for conditions involving nonconstant subexpressions, so you get a
badly-mistaken row count estimate that leads to a poor choice of plan.

If you can't update to 8.0, the best answer is to do the date arithmetic
on the client side.  Another way is to create an allegedly-immutable
function along the lines of "ago(interval) returns timestamptz" to hide
the now() call --- this is dangerous but sometimes it's the easiest answer.
