More accurate would be to say that "a random real is irrational almost always".

After all, krimson's argument will show that for any real number y, P(X=y) = 0. Yet obviously X does take on some real value y, so we cannot say "X is never equal to y" -- we must say "X is equal to y with probability 0."
